‘The Pearl of Sochi’ combines the latest in entertainment technologies and creative wizardry in recreating one of Russia’s most popular poems.

Known for their catchy rhythms, inventive rhymes and bizarre characters, this well-known childhood classic is reborn as a spectacular light, sound and visual effect show titled ‘The Sun Thief’.

‘The Sun Thief’ is the tale of a mischievous crocodile who steals the sun, plunging the world into darkness. Two bear cubs that were happily playing in the woods become separated from their parents due to the sun’s disappearance. Frightened, the animals turn to the bears to help retrieve the sun and bring joy back to the land.

To appeal to the culturally diverse tourist market and transcend language barriers, Laservision’s Creative Department designed a show with no narrative, or dialogue. The story and themes are communicated to the audience through the use of emotive imagery, a unique music score and visual effects.

‘The Sun Thief’ utilises universally recognisable themes of love, anger, fear, fantasy, joy and humour as audiences are immersed in the 20 minute performance.

In addition to the headline show, Laservision provided a secondary high impact, high energy, visual effects spectacular designed specifically to thrill the audience.

‘FX Mania’ incorporates video mapping and multimedia technologies to create a synchronised, 20 minute, high energy, visual feast for audiences to enjoy.

‘FX Mania’ will take the audience on a journey into an alternate reality as the technologies produce a vista of visual effects in a kaleidoscope of colours accompanied by a high energy music compilation.
