Staged on West Lake, Hangzhou. An excerpt from Swan Lake on Youtube
"Zhang Yimou revealed that high-tech holography was used during the show, which presented the relations between humans and images. "The technology was commonly used in indoor shows during recent years, while for outdoor performances, especially on the surface of water, in a purely natural scene, it was probably the first time it was used", Zhang said. "It was more difficult than the opening ceremony of the Olympics." Zhang masterminded the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
The Swan Lake show in the gala combines holographic images and real performers, Zhang said.
"Dancing Swan Lake on the West Lake is quite special, we jokingly said that it is probably the first dance on a real lake since the creation of the classic Swan Lake", said Zhang." (Source: By Bi Nan(chinadaily.com.cn)
