My sea vacay with Genting Dream was a fresh breath of adventurous escapades. More so, because sailing Asia’s largest-luxury cruise introduced me to some extraordinary performances and musicals. With options varying from ‘China’s got talent,’ to ‘Voyage of a Lover’s Dream,’ I was left thrilled by the multitude of entertainment. Watching an exciting musical such as Voyage of a Lover’s Dream might have been the best Live Show I may have attended so far.
This sensational euphony foretells a miraculous romantic tale between a mermaid and an astronaut. In just about three hours, Chinese pop-artist Jacky Tsai teleports you into a fantasy world with some very impactful visuals. From creating the dark skies of agony to sprightly oceans of joy, this signature theatrical by Tsai is a stunning representation of a fairytale love story worth watching, worth experiencing!
I had an early dinner at Silk Road, one of the speciality restaurants onboard Genting Dream – only so that I could make it in time for the world-renowned signature theatrical act by Jacky Tsai. Shortly after seating myself in one of the front rows (courtesy: Dream Cruise), the curtains unfolded to reveal a scintillating stage in a dark theatre. The show opened with an animating entry of two fiction-based female characters. These female characters narrate the complete story, while on the stage, you see equaling chimerical visuals rising and dropping against a double-screened backdrop.
The fleet-footed portrayal of massive galaxies and the intense depths of the subdued ocean is assumed to control by a group of ethereal dancers. The hull-art performance driven by immaculate perfection had me in the first half. In the 2nd-half, I couldn’t keep with the speed of the performers. Some were springing on a trampoline, while others on an upright glass platform. To watch Tsai’s aesthetic pairing of western art with Chinese culture unfolds a phenomenal experience!
In the middle of the performance, few of the artists even get off the stage to engage with the crowds. Other times, they float a big balloon-like-ball towards the audience, and then the ball gets rolling! It’s one of those fun experiences where we’re likely to feel like a child inside an adult’s body.
What makes this show magical though, is the variety of dance forms it employs. On the whole, Voyage of a Lover’s Dream inspires a mindful awakening of art with its glorious backdrops and performances. When sailing Dream Cruise, try and catch some of the special performances they organise! These world-renowned acts are a treat to watch!!
