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 Lake’s 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 Beethoven’s Ode to Joy. The heaven on earth-Hangzhou!

Best show of my life!!!A must if you travel to Hangzhou

Best show of my life!!! Taking full advantage of the landscape - Westlake on-site. The ballet and Kungfu episodes are the most impressive! VIP seat is perfect if you want to take pictures and watch the full view of the show. Otherwise standards seats are great too! It was a very easy arrangement done by Hangzhou Private Tour, and no long queues.

Impression westlake - Amazing show

Amazing show!! The organization and communication with Hangzhou Private Tour was easy and smooth. Really reccomend it! It's true that some normal seat are very close to VIP seats, but the majority are on the sides, so I am still happy that we got VIP seats and were right in the middle. The seats were assigned when the booking was confirmed. Very happy about the service.

Stunningly Spectacular Hangzhou Impression Westlake Show

Suggest to get the vip seats as your seats will be right in the middle. We got the non vip seats and were assigned seats all the way to the side. Your experience of the show will be more affected by rowdy tourists who turns on flash or records the whole show like its for live telecast (and turn on max brightness on their phone). Otherwise, the show was of high quality, good visuals and vibrant lightshow. Beautiful, wonderful. Having seen Zhang Yimou's impression series, everywhere we use different natural scenery, through the wonderful conception of lighting and stage, combined with the humanistic characteristics, we can arrange dances with magnificent momentum and charm. Strongly recommended! Ticketing booth and venue was pretty far away from the downtown. We booked the round way transfer with Hangzhou Private Tour since we heard that it's not east to get a taxi after the show. And it was right!!!

Absolutely stunning show! Highly recommend if travel to Hangzhou

Absolutely stunning show! One of the best things I've seen in my life. I totally recommend it to anyone visiting Hangzhou. It's a must! The Hangzhou Private Tour voucher worked like a charm. Instructions were clear, the place was easy to locate. If I were a local, I would be very proud. It's a performance of natural scenery, lighting, music, dance and opera. It's amazing! Personally, I think it's worth seeing! Overall, a great experience!

Impression Westlake Show Hangzhou - Definitely a must see!

We booked two VIP seats with Hangzhou Private Tour at the last minute. Everything was confirmed promptly. The show last only 45 mins but definitely a worth while experience. Ticket exchange is seamless and fast. Admission at 7pm and show start at 7:45pm. Price difference for normal tickets and vip is not much as worth the upgrade. beautiful dancing and lighting, beautiful famous songs, the stage set up on the West Lake. Only director Zhang Yimou can think of these ideas and make the beautiful scenery of the West Lake deeply popular. When you enjoy the feast of vision and hearing, do you remember Hangzhou most?

The best show to see in Hangzhou in the night

I have read many of the other reviews and they seem a bit mixed, but I have to say that if you are in Hangzhou or the region, (say Shanghai) and you have a day and night to spare, you cannot find anything as magical as this show, nor better to do during an evening there. I have seen the Lijiang Impressions show and that is really fantastic but the Hangzhou show IS worth the money! We were recommended by China hangzhou tour to book the VIP seats in the middle of the stage with only 40RMB more than the normal seats,the view was excellent. The booking process was quite easy with China hangzhou tour. They gave us the bookiig code and we got the tickets at the ticket office with our passorts and the booking code.Yes, I would say it's a "must do", but don't be afraid to take an illegal taxi to get away from the venue. The normal taxis in Hangzhou seem almost extinct!

absolutely wonderful! must see water show in Hangzhou

We watched Impressions of Hangzhou on 3rd May 2018. It was a beautiful show with many many performers and stunning combination of reflections and colours. The show consists of some singing and dancing numbers on the water. I loved the synchronization of the performers, it requires lots of training and they did it quite well. It is a most spectacular outdoor dance show! a must see if you are overnighting in Hangzhou! starts at 1930 and tickets are usually RMB360 and RMB400 for vip seat. Webooked the show tickets with China hangzhou tour which was very easy and quite convient to get the ticket with our passport at the ticket office. The venue is just opposite Shangri-la Hangzhou, or at northern end of Su Causeway...
