New Era For The Impression West Lake Show(Enduring Memories of Hangzhou)

The new show Enduring Memories of Hangzhou, is upgraded by the team led by famous director Zhang Yimou. The upgraded show maintains 80% of the original program content and benefits from a new audio system which has been installed to delight audiences from all over the world.The name of the show is quoted from a very famous poem written by Bai Juyi ( 772 - 846 ), the great poet, litterateur and politician in Chinese Tang Dynasty ( 618 - 907 ). He used to be the mayor of Hangzhou, and was respected and loved by the local people since he did a lot work to make them live better. The new show "Enduring Memories of Hangzhou" was performed for world leaders on September 4th in China for the G20 Summit.Enduring Memories of Hangzhou later made its public debut in October, attracting huge audiences to the West Lake in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province.

This culture fusion performance of East and West, featuring a symphony orchestra and gala on water, is a unique outdoor concert in a natural setting. Through a significant feat of engineering, the stage platform lies centimeters below the West Lakes surface. To the audience, the actors appear to be performing on the surface of the water, which also creates a stunning reflection of the performance and lighting. The entire stage, covering an area of 8,000 square meters divided into three main performance zones spaced significantly apart, posed a great challenge for the monitor system setup.

Act 1 : Spring River in the Flower Moon Night
One of the most unique poems of the Tang dynasty, "Spring River in the Flower Moon Night" is included in virtually all historical surveys of Tang poetry.And this poem has inspired numerous later artworks. The composer Peng Xiuwen created a piece of orchestral music with the same name, which has since entered the classical repertoire for the traditional Chinese instrument guzheng.

Act 2: Dance of Picking Tea Leaves
Among the Chinese dances, the folk dance is the greatest in number, the most extensive and the deepest into life, and the closest to everyone's daily life.The soft music and graceful dancing, as well as the cheerful and warm atmosphere, vividly represent the unique labor involved in traditional tea picking in Hangzhou.

Act 3: A Tale of the Chinese Romeo and Juliet
Based on the Chinese folk tale 'Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai', this romantic tragedy portrays 'Romeo and Juliet' from a distinctly Chinese angle, with its two star-crossed lovers facing the obstacle of a class-based arranged marriage and the archaic idea that "a virtuous woman is one without any talent."

Act 4: High Mountains and Flowing Waters
One of the most historically famous Chinese musical compositions, High Mountains and Flowing Water, describes the virility, depth, decency and nobleness of the mountain, and the harmony between the flowing water and the high mountain. It evokes scenery of a fresh spring cheerfully flowing down the high mountain, while the surf is blowing up mischievously.

Act 5: Ballet Swan Lake
This act moves the famous Russian Ballet Swan Lake to the West Lake. It was a greeting to the world famous Ballet Dance.And it was the first time s Ballet Dance on a real lake with water.

Act 6: My country and I
This national famous song in china express the love to hometown and to the country. Welcome to the most beautiful city in China - Hangzhou.

Act 7: Moon Light
Since ancient times, the moon has been the eternal theme of Chinese literature and the inspiration for countless poets, which can be seen in numerous descriptions of the moon in Chinese poems. In China, the full moon has a long association with family reunion. Hence, viewing the full moon with friends and family has become a traditional custom.

Act 8: The Unforgettable Jasmine Flower
This famous song was played in the opening ceremony of Beijing Olympic games and the Hongkong Handover ceremony. It includes the typical Chinese cultural element and known worldwide, so is honored as the second Chinese anthems.

Act 9: Ode to Joy
The show will reach its ends with Beethovens Ode to Joy. The heaven on earth-Hangzhou!

Synopsis of Impression West Lake

Act I: Encounter

From the remote horizon, a white crane sails near, and transforms into a young scholar. Gently and graciously, he saunters around West Lake. Meanwhile, another white crane comes, transforming into a beautiful woman. In the gorgeous lake view, in the fantastic drizzle, they fall in love with each other at first sight, with a silk umbrella as their pledge for love. It seems as if the engagement scene between Xu Xian and Lady White in the Tale of White Serpent appears again. In this section of the Impression west lake show, there are two symbolic objects, namely White Crane and Umbrella. White Crane represents auspiciousand longevity in china and umbrella is the simble symbol of Love in Hangzhou!

Act II: In Love

As if having independent mind, the fish at the West Lake chases and frolics with each other. Echoing to this brisk and pleasant scene, the characters on stage are displaying their happiness of love with their graceful and smooth dances. In this world, their soul and spirit combine together, with their love as pledge. In this section of the Impression west lake show, there is fish to depict the Love between them. There is a phrase in china that: The Happy between fish and water means the true love between the lovers.

Act III: Parting

Happy time flies. With the drumming rhythm, the show comes to a climax, where the love of this two heavely crane meets obstruction from great powers. Tragically, the female crane dies in the stuggle, bidding a heart-rending farewell to her love.

Act IV: Memories

The male crane returns to the place where they met. The beautiful scenes stay the same, yet his love leaves forever. Numerous charming ladies pass by, yet none of them is his love. The drizzle of that day, the boat where they stay, the promise of their love, can only become memories, for ever, and ever.

Act V: Impression

Dreamly, softly, the legendary love rests in the graceful West Lake. As if in dream, the crane couple meets with each other again, and leaves, until they disappear in the horizon. But the memories of their love leave a mysterious and marvellous impression on us. Maybe some day in the future, when we think of this show, we will be moved to tears again by this love story.

Comments for Impression West lake from the tourists

Sarah USA 11/8/2011

Sarah said:
"We booked through the Hangzhouprivatetour.com, which had a package with tickets to see Zhang Yimous Impression West Lake. 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 us foreigners, but that didn't detract from our 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. Hangzhous Impression West Lake is certainly not to be missed. Hangzhou has plenty to offer in itself, but if you can add the performance into your itinerary, youll be forever grateful. "

"I think Impression West Lake is a great and outstanding show. thanks for Jason 's suggestion and I am so glad we saw it, and the near full moon at that night really add to the amazing atmosphere. The music, dancing, and, most importantly, the setting on West Lake make this an evening that you will always remember fondly. If you are in West Lake, then it is imperative that you see the show. West Lake and this show are DEFINITELY worth an overnight excursion.

"One of the most beautiful places we visited during our China trip. A big and crowded city on the one end of the lake, mountains and nature on the other side. We loved this combination of nature, shopping and city. In case you find a place to stay directly at the lake it is wonderful, warm and beautiful skyline of the city in the evenings. Hangzhou is worth a trip. The show is very entertaing and the setting is spectacular!! The stage effect is very impressive. Definitely a good choice for evening entertainment is Hangzhou! "

"Jiangnan, a word originally referring to a geographic area along south Yangtze River, has long been the byword of the gentleness and softness of the beautiful water towns in the area. Impression West Lake, an extravaganza in West Lake, Hangzhou, is a feast of Jiangnan beauty for the eyes. I just saw the Impression Westlake performance, and I too find it breathtaking. "

The West Lake Impression show was the absolute HIGHLIGHT of our hangzhou trip. We had an enjoyable and entertaining evening viewing the Impression light show. I knew the story and enjoyed the performance.I felt that the lighting was excellent and the venue unique.The performers lacked the precision to make this into an excellent production-perhaps they have become bored. We sat on the float closest to the "stage" and felt our location was perfect The show was amazing and beautifully done. If I had it to do over again, I would have stayed in Hangzhou more days and probably saw this show at least twice. And thanks for Hangzhou private tour to made our hangzhou tour SO good!!!

Dancing and acting on the water lake . Really it was a big emotion and a fantastic show. A must-see for everyone who visits Hangzhou.

Lyric for the song of Impression west lake

Remaining the rain falls upon the steam like lake. The Broken Bridge, with the silk sunshade, my sighing for you paled into black and white. Who on the boat, is writing about my past? A line of vow, but on paper was all about parting. ah~ Standing at the edge of the lake Rain~~, ah~ I look at the north bank in the distance. Remaining the rain falls into a lake of steam. The Broken Bridge, with the silk sunshade, my sighing for you paled into black and white. Who is on the boat, writing about my past? A drawing of the butterfly, but on the paper was all about dispersing. Dada.da. Wu.wu My word of farewell, has never been stopped, the Westlake, again and again With those white wings, fly away the fleeing years. Toss and sigh, (How I long for) heaven on earth. Remains the rain, a thousand years all wet. The lake connecting the sky, paled our meeting into black and white. Who is on the boat, writing about my past? Saying about the real world, then about the mountain and waters.
