Having watched his productions in Guilin and Xian, Hangzhou’s a little over rated due to he upgraded production for G20. It is without story line like the aforementioned. Was told by locals to book from the Ctrip or online platform to save some money...

It's not the show that was "Terrible" (see my rsting above), it was just terrible that it has been closed for several weeks leading up to the G20 Summit. Disappointed not to have seen it.
