The Asian Games is not only a sports event, but also a platform for cultural exchange. On the first day of Asian Games Torch Relay, the dancers wearing long-sleeved clothes performed the dance of West Lake on Earth at Broken Bridge to express the charm of Jiangnan and the beauty of the West Lake.


Later, Shaoxing Opera The Legend of the White Snake as Chinese traditional drama performance narrated the classic love story of meeting at Broken Bridge in a dramatic way.


Through the innovation of narration and expression techniques, these performances perfectly combined the classical humanistic history with the modern performance form, and integrated the wonderful scenery of the West Lake with the performing art, to inject the cultural vitality into the splendid Asian Games.
