The Romantic Story of the Song Dynasty was a play in Hangzhou that absolutely blew my mind, I have seen numerous Broadway shows and this show was better times 5. This show had fireworks, flying people, rain, waterfalls, and snow, everything you could imagine. The costumes were ornate pieces of art and the actors and actresses wore them beautifully. One of my favorite scenes in this love story would have to be when the two lovers die and turn into butterflies so they could finally be together. They then go on to spin around in the air by a piece of fabric, and the girl hangs in the air by a mouthpiece connected to the guy. Their performance was incredible. I wish I could see it again. It had to be one of the best operas ever produced.
