Song 3 – The Butterfly Lovers

Composition: He Zhanhao, Chen Gang

Arrangement: Zheng Yang

The breathtaking waters and mountain scenery surrounding the banks of the Qiantang River gave birth to countless folk romance legends which have been passed on for thousands of years. The Butterfly Lovers is one of such that is globally-renowned. A fine and affectionate violin concerto, paired with smooth and soft Yue Opera vocals complete this light, spiritually-pleasing famous ancient Chinese dance. An innovative blend of multiple artforms, including music, dance, drama, and song, come together to offer a uniquely Chinese romantic expression.




Song 4 High Mountains and Running Water

Arrangement: Wang Zhe

The guqin is an instrument that best conceives the essence of China, and High Mountains and Running Water is the most honored Chinese guqin piece of all time. In Chinese, the phrase “High Mountains and Running Water” is a metaphor for the ingenious music and exquisite guqin playing as well as the value and difficulty of finding an understanding companion. Within this melodic West Lake dialogue of the Eastern guqin and Western cello, the crisp sound of children’s voices rises, reciting the famous piece, Little Grace from The Book of Songs: “Deer calling ‘Yo, yo’, nibbling grass on the plain; I welcome special guests with the se and the sheng.”



作为世界上最著名的芭蕾舞剧,将“天鹅湖”的舞蹈放置进“西湖”的景观之中,是全曲情景表演最别致的创造。依托于水面的G20 logo 拱桥,芭蕾舞演员和神奇幻化的全息影像将共同演绎这一曲“西湖上的《天鹅湖》”。

Song 5 – Swan Lake

Composition: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

As the world’s most famous ballet, placing the dance of Swan Lake within the West Lake landscape is the most unique creation of this scenic performance. Based on the bridge whose arches formed the inspiration behind the G20 logo, ballet performers are accompanied by magical, fantastic holographic visuals to collectively perform Swan Lake on West Lake.

【第六曲】 《我和我的祖国》





Song 6 – Me and My Motherland

Lyrics: Zhang Li

Composition: Qin Yongcheng

Arrangement: Yang Fan

Based on the original, cheerful waltz melody, this expression of passion through song known throughout the land has been recomposed to offer an even more moving and modernized tune. “Me and my homeland, like a wave in its sea.” Although its melody belongs to China, the expressions portrayed in this piece can be equally felt throughout humanity - the love for one’s country.

【第七曲】 《彩云追月》




Song 7 – Colored Clouds Chasing the Moon

Adaptation: Wang Jianzhong

Arrangement: Huang Kairan

Lyrics: Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller
