Spectacular, thoughtful and memorable performance (originally produced for the G20 Summit) - even in the pouring rain! Masterful synthesis by Zhang Yimou. Must see as part of a visit to Hangzhou (programme is under an hour long).

Having watched his productions in Guilin and Xian, Hangzhou’s a little over rated due to he upgraded production for G20. It is without story line like the aforementioned. Was told by locals to book from the Ctrip or online platform to save some money...
