What a GREAT show at WESTLAKE by famous director, Zhang Yi Mou


"Along with such beautiful scenery and places of interest, Hangzhou has many romantic tales. Classical stories include legends about Su Xiaoxiao, a well-known courtesan -- a Chinese Dame au Camellias. Su Xiaoxiao was beautiful and versatile. Once while sightseeing, she met a young man from a noble family. They fell in love at first sight. A few days later, the young man went home and never returned. In the end, the 19-year-old Xiaoxiao died of a fatal disease. There are many poems dedicated to her, and there is a monument on the Bai Causeway commemorating her.

Another romantic tale is about the love between a young man named Xu Xian and the "white snake" (an immortal, whose earthly form was of a beautiful woman, but who also took the shape of a white snake if she drank wine). Their love was not tolerated by society, and finally the white snake was imprisoned under the Leifeng Tower, and Xu Xian's family fragmented."

To me, i think the story is way too sophisticated and the only things that impressed me was the lightings. Even my tour guide who is the local people saying that he could only understand it after watching it for like 3-4 times.

p/s: i wanted to attach the video but it came to a fail even though i've tried for a few times



fyi, the audience are wearing the rain coat due to drizzling. =.=
