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).

Having watched his productions in Guilin and Xian, Hangzhou’s a little over rated due to he upgraded production for G20. It is without story line like the aforementioned. Was told by locals to book from the Ctrip or online platform to save some money...

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

Worth every cent of the ticket price. Worth queuing to get in. It rained and we were handed ponchos. Zhang Yimou is really great in directing. As the crowd dispersed, it was almost impossible to get a taxi. We had to use a black market...More

It's not the show that was "Terrible" (see my rsting above), it was just terrible that it has been closed for several weeks leading up to the G20 Summit. Disappointed not to have seen it.
