Many fairy tales start with “Once upon a time…”, making it a perfect title for the annual winter show. It foretells the start of an adventure, a new chapter of life.
The show began with the host and the hostess walking out of a book cover, implying a journey into a magical world. The students’ performances brought us to ancient Hangzhou with the love story of Liang and Zhu and the legendary military life of Yue Fei the national hero, to the future with artificial intelligence and other highly advanced technologies, and to the magical world of Harry Potter. The school also turned into a fairyland on that day, with castles and the starry night sky.
Before the show, every student wrote a letter for his/her future self. The letters were sealed with sealing wax, waiting to be reopened like time capsules.
