Led by famous Danish director Steen Koerner, dance superstars combine contemporary acrobatics and various dances to give a brand-new interpretation of fairy tales written by Hans Christian Andersen. The performance is offered to audiences of all ages. From the elderly, children to parents, all family members can enjoy a joyful feast together. It's characterized by bold visual effects, super soundtracks, extraordinary sound effects and top-grade stage effects. They can enjoy the wonderful singing melodies by singers along with various stunt performances, which end with Andersen fairy tale, The Ugly Duckling.
Six Andersen tales, i.e., The Nightingale, The Unwise Hans, The Emperor's New Clothes, The Princess and the Pea, Little Match Girl and The Ugly Duckling, are familiar to one and all. On the basis of various elements such as the theatre, dance, latest acrobatics, video, animation, music and singing, supplemented by narration and singers' earnest melody, a dozen dancers and acrobats showcase their talents.
The meticulously-designed physical form creates a stunning three-dimensional lighting sculpture and presents a fantasy world that is true to nature. Multiple projectors cover the stage, while front and rear areas are projected for full animation from beginning to end. The stage scenery is tailored so that dance jumping from one scene to another achieves the best stage effect. Flying lifting rope is another stage prop.
