A new immersive theater show at the Music Infinity space of the Shanghai Concert Hall takes audiences on a morning metro train ride with a young man on the way to work.

As he dozes off and slips into the dream world, audiences get to witness his dreamy encounter with a woman dressed in a traditional Chinese costume and embark on a musical journey involving the pipa, guzheng, bamboo flute and a host of other Chinese instruments.

At one point, they even get to pick up castanets and sand hammers to be a part of the performance themselves.

Titled I Dreamed a Dream, this 50-minute theater production was created specially for the Music Infinity space on the fourth floor of the Shanghai Concert Hall, where an exhibition about traditional Chinese music is taking place. The first round of 10 performances is taking place on the weekends from Dec 9 to Sunday.

"Besides being an iconic location for music appreciation, the 92-year-old Shanghai Concert Hall needs to open up more performing spaces that are unique and vibrant to the public, so as to satisfy people's diverse demand for performing art experiences, and let them go home happily and fulfilled," says Fang Jing, general manager of the Shanghai Concert Hall, referring to the reason behind the production.
