MALACCA IMPRESSIONS BY END 2014

Malacca all set to make a huge Impression

MALACCA: An outdoor performance combining spectacular, high-tech lighting with natural scenery is set to make its debut in Malacca by the end of 2014.

Under an MoU signed between PTS Impression Sdn Bhd and Impression Wonder Arts Co. Ltd of China, the performance – part of the “Impression” series – in Malacca will be the first to be held outside China.

Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen, who witnessed the signing, said the Impression series would unveil a pool of local performers as well as provide job opportunities for locals.

“Its debut in Malaysia is considered a dream come true for me as I always wanted to have the performance held here following the splendid show during the Beijing Olympics in 2008, which was also choreographed by the company’s director, Wang Chao Ge.

“The presence of the eminent entertainment company will give the country, particularly Malacca, a big-bang effect,” she said.
