We had higher expectations. Consider a nice to experience show if you are in Hangzhou. Tickets RMB360 for regular & RMB400 for VIP seats. Go for the VIP seats which are more centred. It’s not easy navigating the electronic ticket printing machine if you cannot...More

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).
