Chinese New Year SkySymphony at SkyAvenue, Resorts World Genting
To start off the Chinese New Year festivities, SkySymphony the ‘Theatre of Lights and Sound’ at SkyAvenue mall, Resorts World Genting launches a brand new show to usher in the new year of the Dog.
With LED screens covering four storeys, SkySymphony is a state-of-the-art fantastic feature at SkyAvenue mall where 1,001 winch balls synchronise and move to form different shapes that come alive to tell a story.
The launch of the Chinese New Year winch started out with a bang with a blast of confetti and a grand total of 8 lions prancing around with great energy. According to Chinese tradition, lion dance performances are typically held during the New Year. It is believed that this special performance will bring in luck and drive away any negative energy.
On hand to add further excitement to the launch are six Choy San Yeh, or the ‘God of Prosperity’ who show up onstage alongside the lions to add gaiety as well as to distribute mandarin oranges to lucky visitors.
The much awaited show finally starts to the delight of visitors awaiting. For approximately five minutes, we were transfixed by the audio, visual and motion graphics showcase which is Asia’s largest permanent winch installation and its first multimedia winch attraction.
The show opens with the image of the yin and yang symbol formed by the winch balls and gentle rolling clouds on the screen.
The Chinese letters of the fundamental elements of all things in the universe that interact – wood, fire, earth, metal and water made their appearances too.
The twelve animals of the Chinese Zodiac, which is different for each individual according to the year they were born on, are seen gamboling and frolicking in the clouds and in the sea onscreen.
A gleeful ‘Choy San Yeh’ appears onscreen and the animals of the zodiac are ushered out in turn, aptly ending with animal prominently featured for this year, the year of the Dog wishing all visitors ‘Gong Xi Fa Cai’, or blessing for the New Year.

Besides catching the launch of the Chinese New Year winch show, we also went around taking pictures of the Chinese New Year decor around SkyAvenue.
Resorts World Genting is definitely ready for Chinese New Year. The CNY mood is obvious and lively 6000 feet above sea level.

The shows start from 10am to midnight daily. The SkySymphony Chinese New Year show runs from 20 January to 4 March.
