A Relaxing Side of the G20 Summit at Hangzhou

If you like dance show and have an hour to kill, you might want to take a look at the closing ceremony of the recently held G20 Summit. It is a nice combination of traditional Chinese and European orchestra.

    The performance is definitely breath taking but more than just a dance show, imo.
    It is scaled as a projection of both China’ s ‘ soft power’ – selected vignettes of its classical traditions and contemporary talents – and ‘ hard power’ – the skill to organize mega- events and micro- manage to exacting detail.
    Some also see political nuances : Russian Tchaikovsky’ s Swan Lake, French Debussy’ s Moonlight and German Beethoven’ s Ode to Joy.
    For a farewell finale, a rendition of Scottish Burns Auld Lang Syne.
    Quite befitting Brexit. And no Broadway sounds. They didn’ t fit into the programme? 🙂
