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).

We were lucky to see this as it was only available 7 days before our arrival this Springtime. Designed by the award winning movie-director Zhang Yimou and was first showcased to many G20 world leaders in 2016, the show employed the clever mix of laser,...More
