There is more to The House of Dancing Water than a mere play

It is spectacular with the facts that it extends way beyond its musical theater aspect and it involves acrobats, the use of “water” both as props and as the subject of the show with its literal dancing performance, a few ballet performances, and a motor cross exhibition held in the middle of the play. All these provide a colorful and flavorful look to the play’s simple story line, making it worth the watch for every tourist that steps foot in Macau. Here are the interesting scenes found in the play and as much as I was forbidden to take photos with my camera phone that lights up like a flash even without a flash, I still managed to document.

It is rare to find similar plays in any countries I have been to. Another aspect to appreciate about the play is its uniqueness as witnessed in its first look at stage decorations, at a musical play rolled into ballet performances, acrobat shows and motor cross exhibitions, and at the use of ‘water’ as subject and props.
