is a performance like you have never seen or experienced
An area of 2 kms along Lijiang River and
12 peaks as stage setting, tighter with boundless sky,
compose the Shanshui Theatre with mountains and rivers
the largest natural theatre in the world. In this masterpiece
of the creator, a brand-new performance on the natural
stage setting of Guilin scenery is produced.
Unlike the traditional artificial stage
performance, the performance on the natural stage is
a great work of man and god. No one knows how long this
picturesque scenery has been waiting in rain and mists.
Is its graceful image made for us? Peaks appearing indistinctly,
the reflection of mountains in the water, misty rain
and the sound of charming in the bamboo forest, are
all ready to join in the performance as interludes.
Suddenly this makes us learn the miraculous charm of
this performance: we only do half of the work while
the other half is done by the creator whose improvisation
makes each scene fresh to us.
our great honor to have ZhangYimous as chief director.
With his university acknowledge talent and creativity,
he makes matchless works. In his eyes, the creator is
green, representing a harmonious relationship between
humans and nature.
Gratitude should be extended to another
two young directors Wang Chaoge and Fanyue. They ture
the concept of the performance into reality with their
creative enthusiasm and practical ability. Furthermore,
we have top-gate designers of music, stage art, lighting
and costume from home and abroad. I believe they are
not chosen by the producer but the creator.
In the past 5 years, we made numerous modifications
to the plan of the performance, and now we are approaching
its perfection. Here, all efforts of man are to make
themselves a part of nature and become its spirit. It's
green and it's peaceful. It's a baptism of nature and
it's a return of human nature.
