Impression West Lake, a landscape show directed by Zhang Yimou, Wang Chaoge and Fan, is becoming a very popular show in Hangzhou in the early summer of 2010.
Taking the green hills as background, the weeping willows as screen and the water as stage, the show begins with a white crane flying from the sky. He becomes a young scholar walking on the water surface a moment later. After that, another crane shows up and becomes a young lady. The story that has been told for over a thousand years begins when they fall in love with each other. The rain continues, making the lake smoky and romantic. The silk umbrella dances above the Broken Bridge and the scenes of the love story continues. With the song “Impression of West Lake Rain” by Zhang Liangying, the lake is covered by a huge triangle screen of rain and mist, in which the young scholar and lady started their journey of love and death. The colorful lights and TTC Rubymist system work together to create different backgrounds for the young couple to meet, fall in love with, bid farewell to and recall each other. Their time together is short, their separation is permanent and their sweet moments are unforgettable.
TTC uses its advanced technology to create the rain and mist for Impression West Lake. Whenever TTC Rubymist system works together with the colorful lights to create a fantastic scene, the audiences spontaneously applauded for the magic effect. Surprised by the beauty of rain and mist, many foreign tourists do not want to leave after the show is over. “West Lake Rain and Mist” not only creates good stage effect to play the permanent love story but also brings cool and fresh air to the audiences in the early summer.
