The House of Dancing Water 水舞間 | Macau, China

Just like I mentioned in my previous post (Read it here), the evening didn’t end just like that after dinner at Beijing Kitchen! We hopped over to the theatre just beside the restaurant to catch what everyone will say… The world’s most spectacular water-based show! Read on to find out more!

[Experience Macau May 2013]
16th May 2013 – Day 1 (Part 2)
The House of Dancing Water 水舞間

The House of Dancing Water is the centerpiece of City of Dreams that was envisioned by Mr Lawrence Ho, Co-Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Melco Crown Entertainment Limited. And working with Franco Dragone Entertainment Group and personally created and directed by Mr Franco Dragone himself, comes the birth of the world’s largest and most magnificent water show drawn to tell a love story that transcends time and space through China’s deep story-telling heritage!

Settling down in the 270-degree round theatre…

The show is about a story beginning at the coast of Coloane, where a fisherman traveling with his boat got caught by a mysterious energy that pulls him to a place and time of legends. He was lost and intrigued when a storm brings a survivor from a shipwreck to this magical kingdom. There, the survivor encounters and falls in love with a beautiful Princess who was locked up in a cage by her evil stepmother, the Dark Queen. But the fisherman decided to help the survivor fight against the Dark Queen and save the princess albeit being entirely strangers.

The dramatic chase and fight to rescue the Princess involved heavy machineries and stunts too!


Anyway, these stuntmen did impressive jumps of about 15 meters height and 20 meters length! WOW!

And with that, it’s a wrap of the show! Thankfully, we were seated within the A reserve area (Ticket & Seating info here…) and we had a really good view of the extremely spectacular water-based show that takes physical performances pass limits through combat, wit, creativity, incredible expertise and agility!

Just to throw in some fun facts for you… The final show cast comprises of about 80 performers from 25 nations: approximately 50 acrobats and gymnasts, 10 Tanzanian performance group Pyramid, 7 dancers, 4 musicians and 7 motorcycle stuntmen. Oh! And not forgetting at the backend, 160 production staffs, technicians and professional divers, where 20 scuba divers will provide support during the show.

Seriously, if this isn’t spectacular, I don’t know what else is! So if you’re heading to Macau, do consider catching the show and experience for yourself the world’s most spectacular water-based show!

Anyway, just to add! We were given a spacious and comfortable room at Sofitel Macau at Ponte 16 each! Love the room, love the beautiful view every morning when I draw the curtains, love the service from the hotel staffs and of course, love how it is strategically located near most of the attractions!

I’m so going back to Sofitel Macau when I visit Macau again! 😀
