AAmidst a stiff competition of over 150 cities from all over the world, PTS Properties has recently been awarded the exclusive rights to import “Impression” – an internationally acclaimed series of outdoor musical show by renowned Chinese filmmakers Zhang Yimou, Wang Chaoge and Fan Yue – into Melaka, Malaysia. Aptly named “Impression Melaka”, the state is the first city out of China to stage the spectacular show, which is endorsed by Tourism and Culture Ministry of Malaysia as a National Key Economic Area Tourism project.
Impression Melaka will also be the first world-class international mega performance out of China, in Southeast Asia. The project is a partnership with China Impression Wonders Art Development Co Ltd, whose directors were also in charge of the opening and closing ceremonies of Beijing 2008 Olympics. The cinematography show will integrate Melaka’s glorious history and modern day culture with characteristic music, presenting a feast of light, shadows, dance, fine arts and melodies along with strong visual and acoustic impact.
The Impression Melaka will be performed on an iconic theatre built with a 360̊ revolving seating area for over 2,000 people. The only one in the region, the 70-minute show is expected to include a cast of 500 employees, inclusive of 200 performers, and is expected to attract 1.2 million new tourists.
The RM300 million project will unveil the development of a spacious theatre, as well as areas comprising retails, restaurants, hotels and a tourism village.
