An evening at Zhang Yimou’s folk musical, “Impression Liu Sanjie”

Yesterday I had the good fortune of spending the evening at Zhang Yimou’s folk musical, “Impression Liu Sanjie.” The stage itself is on the Li River in Yangshuo with mountains in the backdrop. The visuals are breath-taking. If you are familiar with Zhang Yimou’s movies, you might know that the director is also famous for his use of color. It took 600+ performers to fill this massive “stage.” I don’t have much time to fill you in on the background at the moment, but would like to share with you some images I took during the show.

    Oh my God! Zhang Yimou knows how to impress people with live shows, did it in Olympic opening ceremony and now with that musical, in that photos seems amazing.

    It is the most spectacular show I have ever seen. Highly recommend it. I have been several times.
