SeaWorld Orlando is kicking off the summer season with a new theatrical show that choreographs music, lasers and gigantic bubbles.
Bubble expert Fan Yang hosts the live performance called “Pop” two to four times a day, excluding Thursdays, at SeaWorld’s Nautilus Theater through September 4.
Yang is known for manipulating bubbles of all shapes and sizes at the Gazillion Bubble Show in New York City and Las Vegas.
“I looked to the sea and found amazing inspiration,” Yang said. “The bubbles found naturally in our oceans, trails of bubbles left by swimming penguins and bubbles created by dolphins and whales all came to mind.”
The set features 23-foot tall screens that flank the stage at the Nautilus Theater, which once showed the Cirque du Soleil style show A’Lure.
“The screens give us the opportunity to combine technology and imagery with the live performance on stage,” said Steve Welch, SeaWorld’s creative director. “Through video of sea animals and the oceans, the screens help immerse guests in a world filled with bubbles.”
Two members of the audience will be chosen to become the heart of a life-size bubble on stage. The show culminates with a wave of light, lasers and sound while surrounding the entire theater in an endless sea of bubbles.
Pop is included with park admission and reserved seating can be purchased online or at the park, starting at $10 a seat.
