Synopsis of Impression West Lake

Act I: Encounter

From the remote horizon, a white crane sails near, and transforms into a young scholar. Gently and graciously, he saunters around West Lake. Meanwhile, another white crane comes, transforming into a beautiful woman. In the gorgeous lake view, in the fantastic drizzle, they fall in love with each other at first sight, with a silk umbrella as their pledge for love. It seems as if the engagement scene between Xu Xian and Lady White in the Tale of White Serpent appears again. In this section of the Impression west lake show, there are two symbolic objects, namely White Crane and Umbrella. White Crane represents auspiciousand longevity in china and umbrella is the simble symbol of Love in Hangzhou!

Act II: In Love

As if having independent mind, the fish at the West Lake chases and frolics with each other. Echoing to this brisk and pleasant scene, the characters on stage are displaying their happiness of love with their graceful and smooth dances. In this world, their soul and spirit combine together, with their love as pledge. In this section of the Impression west lake show, there is fish to depict the Love between them. There is a phrase in china that: The Happy between fish and water means the true love between the lovers.

Act III: Parting

Happy time flies. With the drumming rhythm, the show comes to a climax, where the love of this two heavely crane meets obstruction from great powers. Tragically, the female crane dies in the stuggle, bidding a heart-rending farewell to her love.

Act IV: Memories

The male crane returns to the place where they met. The beautiful scenes stay the same, yet his love leaves forever. Numerous charming ladies pass by, yet none of them is his love. The drizzle of that day, the boat where they stay, the promise of their love, can only become memories, for ever, and ever.

Act V: Impression

Dreamly, softly, the legendary love rests in the graceful West Lake. As if in dream, the crane couple meets with each other again, and leaves, until they disappear in the horizon. But the memories of their love leave a mysterious and marvellous impression on us. Maybe some day in the future, when we think of this show, we will be moved to tears again by this love story.
