Live-action show: Four Seasons in Zhouzhuang

The live-action show Zhouzhuang in Four Seasons is a visual and musical extravaganza that promises to allow visitors to get to know Zhouzhuang in just one night.

Based around a classic love story set during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), the show has been a huge hit with audiences since it first debuted in 2007 thanks to its sumptuous visuals, including a stunning stage featuring small bridges, running rivers and riverside households.

Tickets are 150 yuan ($23) per person, 280 yuan for VIP seats, and can be bought from the ticket office next to the south of Xinpai Archway. Starting in April 1, the show is staged every evening at 7-8 pm until November every year.
