It is spectacular in a way that it extends way beyond its musical theater aspect, and also involves acrobats, the use of “water” both as props and 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 step their 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 personally have been to. Another aspect to appreciate about the play is its uniqueness, as witnessed in its first look at stage decorations, a musical play also rolled into ballet and acrobat shows, and motor cross exhibitions, and the use of ‘water’ as subject and props.
The actual stage
It is indeed impossible not to get wet while watching this spectacular play. But still I enjoyed it!
Where and when to watch the play Macau, City of Dreams. Everyday except Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
