LAS VEGAS (AP) – Winter came to Las Vegas.

Fire-breathing dragons held court over the world-famous fountains at the Bellagio casino resort Sunday, as familiar elements from the TV phenomenon "Game of Thrones" were projected on the rising water. The jets danced to a score incorporating the recognizable theme song before one of the colossal beasts lit up the Las Vegas Strip in a blaze of pyrotechnics.

The streaming water formed the show's iconic throne and crown. A towering 800-foot-long (244-meter) wall of water emerged from the lake

The display, however, did not reveal any elements of the new season.

"We just didn't want to Portray literally scenes from 'Game of Thrones' here, not like or preview of season eight, "said Mark Fuller, CEO of WET Design, the company that created the fountains and show. "We want to bring you the emotion."

At the heart of the fountain show is the giant wall of water. It represents the ice wall that defines the TV show, but also serves as a surface onto which the creators project falling snow, the series' logo and the silhouettes of the dragons breathing orange and blue flames.

The company worked with the series 'composer Ramin Djawadi to create a special score that along with the dancing water aimed at capture the excitement of the TV hit.

The fountain show starts at dropping musical hints of the TV series, using Djawadi's "Winter is Here" from the seventh season. It comes to full force as the show's recognizable "Main Titles" theme song comes on.

"We have to make sure that the fountain gives the same child of energy, the same child of drama, that people are associating this music with , "said Peter Kopik, director of design and choreography for WET Design. "(That) was the hard part of the choreography because it was continuously energetic and continuously up and loud and strong, and choreography had to reflect the same thing and not being tiring at the same time."
