If you have never seen the terrific Golden Mask Dynasty Show Beijing venue, we at Cool Beijing recommend going to watch it as soon as possible for the summer season! This extremely impressive big stage production has been the center stage of the Beijing Happy Valley events. Now it has become even more popular amongst tourists and other visitors who simply come to see the show! Read below about how we interviewed the famous stage designer about the famous waterall scene.
The ‘Waterfall’ scene in the grand dance show, “Golden Mask Dynasty” was astonishing: Water literally runs down from the elevating platform, right on stage! People were fighting so hard to make it excellent, that one can feel the intense rage from the water vapor itself. How was the special effect created? The lead stage designer Ju Yi said: “As a matter of fact, the stage and its special effects were designed three years ago at the time when the OCT Theatre was built.”
Ju Yi has shown his daring endeavor in his previous creations. For instance, in the 50th anniversary celebration of the victory over World War II which was held in The Great Hall of the People, Ju Yi’s scene of ”The collapse of the Empire State Building” was astounding and remarkable.
Ju Yi said: “There was a water reservoir in front of the stage and the reservoir was covered. The cover could be removed during the dance show to create the waterscape for the special effect. I required the cover to be thin, i.e 15cm, however the manufacturer, not complying with my requirements, made it thick. I’d personally been to the factory several times just to persuade them to make the cover thinner in accordance to my requirement. At last, they did what I asked. Hence, in my opinion, the key to the success of the dance show in Las Vegas was to be scrupulous about every details and always ensure that every aspects of the production was perfect.
Speaking of the stage design of the “Golden Mask Dynasty”, Ju Yi said: “We had created a lot of scenes that were as impressive as the ’Waterfall’ scene. For example, the 360 degree turnable war background was turned upside down so that the men of Golden Mask Dynasty were sent to the top while the Blue Mask men were sent to the bottom to create a visual effect that the men of Golden Mask Dynasty sent the Blue Mask men to ‘Hell’. Such visual presentation was unique.” Though Ju Yi admitted that the storyline and the audio part of the “Golden Mask Dynasty” needed some improvements, yet it is undeniable that the dance show is still the best dance show in Beijing.
Hope you liked it and don’t miss it!
