Mapping show at the Ruins of St. Paul’s in celebration of National Day

To celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the Founding of the People’s Republic of China, Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) will present a special mapping show titled “Glorious Splendour in Celebration of the 70th Anniversary of the Founding of the People’s Republic of China” at the Ruins of St. Paul’s for three consecutive nights from 29th September to 1st October, sharing the joy brought by this momentous occasion with residents and visitors.

 

The mapping show “Glorious Splendour in Celebration of the 70th Anniversary of the Founding of the People’s Republic of China” will be staged at the Ruins of St. Paul’s on the nights of 29th and 30th September and 1st October. Lasting around 5 minutes per round, the show will take place every 15 minutes from 8 p.m. – 10 p.m. on 29th September, and 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. on 30th September and 1st October.

 

The mapping show will bring out a story consisting of two parts: 1) United celebration by Macao residents; 2) Joyful and auspicious! Jointly celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the Founding of the People’s Republic of China!  

 

Part one: United celebration by Macao residents

The audience will see the images of different local architectures festooned with the national flags amid local streets and lanes projected upon the Ruins of St. Paul’s. The Guia Fortress, one of Macao’s iconic architectures, will come into the spotlight in the end. There will be a ray of dazzling light, symbolizing our Country’s guidance for Macao as the city sets sail for the future.

 

Raising a decorative archway for National Day celebration is part of Macao’s local colors. By the technique of projection mapping, the show is created to reflect the splendour of a glittering decorative archway and the city’s joyous festive culture. The happiness will be expressed in in the phrase: “Welcome to Macao, join us in celebrating the National Day”, coupled with a golden lotus blossom. The number “20” will also appear to represent the 20th Anniversary of the Establishment of the Macao Special Administrative Region.

 

Part two: Joyful and auspicious! Jointly celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the Founding of the People’s Republic of China! 

Auspicious red lanterns and auspicious clouds will slowly arise, wishing prosperity and peace for the Country and its people. A carp will swim through green rivers and bamboo groves to leap over the dragon gate, against a jubilant and harmonious backdrop teeming with gorgeous blooms of peony, the national flower.  

 

The structural image of Tiananmen will be projected upon the Ruins of St. Paul’s, followed by the solemn appearance of the components of the national emblem. The spectacular is lively and bustling with splendid fireworks in celebration of the 70th Anniversary of the Founding of the People’s Republic of China. As the ending nears, the symbol for the celebration of the 70th Anniversary of the Founding of the People’s Republic of China will come into sight in tandem with congratulatory words meaning “Glorious Splendour in Celebration of the 70th Anniversary of the Founding of the People’s Republic of China”. The show will culminate in epic music and bring the joyous vibes to the climax, tugging at the heart strings of spectators in dual celebrations.
