Impression West Lake Show (Hangzhou)

Impression West Lake Show

Staged entirely upon the lake itself (a stage has been built 3 centimeters below the surface), Impression West Lake Show is a spectacle of light, music, dance and theatrics. The story is based on a Hangzhou legend. Using the lake and its surroundings as props, lights and hundreds of actors create a fantastic performance. Similar performances are staged in Yangshuo and Lijiang. Hangzhou’s Impression West Lake is certainly a must-visit place.

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 brings you to a sweet thousand-year dream. The special concealable auditorium ensures each seat a wonderful place to enjoy the show. Be sure to come and 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 perfomance 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.
