“Water, Water Everywhere!”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

Our guide, Emma of China Odyssey, highly recommended this show. It was produced by the director of the Beijing Summer Olympics, and it was spectacular. It tells a folktale of a Queen who imprisons a warrior, then falls in love with him. She sacrifices herself to save her people, and lover, from a great flood. The waterworks to represent the flood were a sight to see. Water poured down the stage (even to the first row of seats) and flowed halfway down the sides of the theater! It was not to be missed. Thanks to Emma for encouraging us to attend.

A truly amazing experience! Amazing sets, including along the sides of the theatre, lavish costumes, incredible energy, and an unbelievable flood scene towards the end. Have never seen anything like it before!

“Good value for money, although the theatre is very far”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

The show was very entertaining and good value for money as we managed to get the cheapest 120 yuan tickets. Our seats were located just one behind the vip-seats and there's definitely no excuses for the 600 yuan vip-tickets, so take the cheapest you get. The show was good with a great variety of different costumes and styles, although definitely not ready: the dancers didn't manage to perform the movements at the same time etc., and the theatre is pretty far from everything and you should take a bus from downtown - not even subway. But for 120 yuan and even more, entertaining!

“The golden mask dynasty show, Beijing”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

If you have a holiday in Beijing you most definitely HAVE TO see THe Golden Mask Dynasty show. Please believe me when I say it was wonderful, we decided to go on our last day of our trip and we were blown away by this beautiful theatrical extraviganza !!!! The story is a simple love story but each scene is an explosion of colour and beauty and typical Chinese dance and acrobatics at its very best. The music is beautiful and you will not have a problem understanding the story, there are a few amazing scenes but the flood scene is unbelievable, WOW IT IS. AMAZING !!! Lots of love from Patrick. And. Zoe. xxxx Oh I must mention, try to get a centre seat, you will get the best view !!!

“Amazing effects”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

This chinese made musical is 4 star in my opinion. It has a mix of acrobatics added into the various scenes. To get a good appreciation of the show, try to get the middle section of the seats. The climax is the flood scene which is beyond words and you need to see it to believe it.
