Romance of Song Dynasty Show

The Romance of the Song Dynasty (宋城千古情)is a large stereoscopic musical and dancing show which adopted the historical tales and legends in Hangzhou, integrated the world class music with acrobatic art, and applied the high technology to create a dreamy poetic imagery. The show boasts brilliantly colorful costumes, blinding laser lights, excellent stage props, and magnificent dancers and actors. You can have a strong visual impact, and you may be impressed as if you live one thousand years ago. Till now, the show has received more than 80 million audiences. Together with Moulin in Paris and O Show in Las Vegas, are the “World’s Top Three Shows”. It is a performance you should not miss during your visit to Hangzhou.

 

The performance starts with entertainment by two clowns, followed by an acrobatics show of the "Legend of the Ancestors".  The main show is divided into four scenes of the Southern Song Dynasty.


The first scene is "The Banquet Dance in the Song Palace", with exceptional traditional costumes of the emperor and empress, palace officials, and palace entertainers, all dancing to ancient Chinese music. 

Impression of the West Lake Show

Staged entirely upon the lake itself (a stage has been built 3 centimeters below the surface), Impression West Lake is a spectacle of light, music, dance and theatrics. The story is based on a Hangzhou legend (somewhat lost on foreigners, but that does not detract from enjoyment). Using the lake and its surroundings as props, lights and hundreds of actors create a sensational performance. Similar performances are staged in Yangshuo and Lijiang. Hangzhou’s Impression West Lake is certainly not to be missed.
 
It is a unique outdoor performance on natural settings. Staged on the West Lake, the performance appears vivid and incredibly beautiful. Mixed with the myths and legends of the West Lake, the show leads you to a sweet thousand-year dream. The special concealable auditorium ensures each seat a wonderful place to enjoy the dazzling show. The state-of-the-art sound system is surely to offer a surprising musical enjoyment. Be sure to catch it, the show is a must-see when you come to Hangzhou. Come and enjoy the most amazing and beautiful spectacle you will see in your life.

 

The director of this show is Mr Zhang Yimou, who was in charge of the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. This performance is co-directed by Wang Chaoge and Fan Yue. The music is composed by Mr Kitaro and the song is from Ms Zhang Liangyin. Although the whole performance is a five-act play, i.e., encounter, fall in love, say goodbye, memory, and impression, in performance there is not necessarily any clear separation between them.

ERA-Intersection of Time: Acrobatic Show

Highlight 1 Mirror Mirage
Entering the auditorium, the audience will see themselves through the reflection of a huge mirror cylinder with a height of 6 meters and a dimension of 11 meters. House light dims and the dream-like journey of ERA starts from the center of this mirror cage.

Highlight 2 Magic Water
An 8 x 18 meters water curtain with thousands of holes of 0.8 µ wide each serves as an ideal screen for multimedia projections.

Highlight 3 Floating Gondola
Piercing through the water curtain comes out a Chinese compass (a magnetic spoon on a map), which is a good symbol of the Chinese ancient civilization. As soon as beautiful water scenes are created by the multimedia projectors, the spoon has transformed into a gondola providing a platform for the artist to perform on.

Highlight 4 Music of ERA
Having a good mastery of the features of Chinese music, the famous Canadian composer Michel Cusson wrote the music according to each act. The style, the music elements, the orchestration… everything shows that the music of ERA is an excellent combination of eastern and western music. The live performance by one band with Chinese traditional instruments + another with western instruments offers the audience extra enjoyment.
