Seeing an Impression West Lake Show
By Viator, January 2016
Comprised of five separate acts, the Impression West Lake show follows the storyline of an ancient Hangzhou legend—the Legend of the White Snake—and is directed by Zhang Yimou, a master film maker and stage producer who similarly directed the opening and closing ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics. Utilizing state of the art sound and lighting systems the Impression West Lake show creates a visual and auditory feast which, when combined with the natural beauty of the surrounding West Lake (Xi Hu) area, serves as one of the finest entertainment options in the city of Hangzhou. Performances run nightly from March through December, with a second showing offered on weekends.
