In addition to the 80 minutes excellent performance, the Haitang Show also went close to audience before the show. The fascinating show delivered by staff in their fancy costumes have made every step a pleasant surprise as the audience walked in the theater, and carried them away with sheer creativity; the experience will for sure make the night a unforgettable one. The production team is comprised of famous artists from seven countries; it’s a truly “China story demonstrated by international talents”. The show is directed by Emmy Award winner Gale Edwards; the script and the lyrics were both produced by veteran lyrics writer Chen Lerong, who has created a large number of popular songs performed by Sally Yeh, Ouyang Feifei, Aaron Kwok and many other famous singers. Also worth noting is, the average cost of one seat in the Wanda Haitan Bay Theatre was Rmb 120,000, a gesture that Wanda strives to bring to the audience luxurious experience.
