Cool Golden Mask Dynasty Show at Happy Valley

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!
