We loved this a big spectacular with all the bells and whistles. I was thinking it would be really dull but was blown away! It is China does Hollywood but I was left open mouthed at the displays, acrobatics, costumes and stage effect. Terrific!

This is a show that is quite remarkable in the effects that are generated on an indoor stage setting.
The show was relatively easy to grasp in concept for non Chinese but the beauty is in the overall stage settings and effects, especially with water featuring in a variety of sets.
We saw this show as part of a Nexus tour and, from my perspective, the show was the absolute standout of the optional extras.
Do not miss it.

Unfortunately, and to our great frustration, we missed the first 15 minutes of the show - which only lasts an hour - thanks to our driver first miscalculating the Beijing traffic congestion and then getting lost. But we think we did see the most impressive parts of the show.

The storyline is actually a bit weak and is not helped by the fact that (if you can't read Chinese) the short English summary that is provided on a screen to the right of the stage is written in very clumsy and sometimes incomprehensible "English". So if you spend too much time trying to decipher the text you will miss a lot of the show. Best to ignore the text and concentrate on the dancers etc. The choreography etc. is also not always top-notch (we are not talking the Bolshoi here!). One of our trampolinists missed his footing and had what looked like a fairly painful fall.

Regardless, these imperfections are more than made up for by the special effects, especially the flood scene (apparently inspired by a similar scene in a Parisian show several decades ago). The volume of water is truly breath-taking. Probably best not to sit too close to the stage. We were seated about 15 rows back, which was ideal, being close enough to receive the occasional tiny drop of spray - but the people sitting in the first couple of rows seemed to get a fair drenching! Other special effects ranged from amusing to impressive (the peacocks are real!). This show has the advantage in that you see both traditional Chinese dancing and theatrics as well as acrobatics.

Have read other reviews where people complain about the price. We pre-paid for VIP seats and found the price reasonable by European standards. Reckon where you are seated is all important, certainly if you are stuck right at the back of the theatre with a partially obscured view of the stage you won't be as impressed...!

Not knowing what to expect from this Chinese drama.. we were totally blown away and amazed by the theatrics/ sets and acoustics... the costumes were spectacular for the 200 + cast. It tells a story across several scene changes and there was an English explanation on a side panel before each set change. A huge flood scene had the entire stage and boxes inundated with waterfalls and rapids; it was astounding. Storyline is a little weak but performance, creativity etc was asounding!! One of the producers was involved in the Beijing Olympic Games opening ceremony too...

We came here by Mac 2013.I bought the tickets from tour agency when I arrived at Beijing.I called them and collect the tickets in front of theater 30min before the show start.The theater is located inside the amusement park called Happy Valley .The ticket cost RMB200/person(section A),very reasonable.Overall we enjoyed the show very much,although the story is boring.We were impressed with the high technologies of their stage presentation,especially the "flooding show"
