Yesterday I went to the reopening of Melbourne’s Chinese Museum, which has been closed for refurbishment for some while.
I am always happy to visit the processional dragons that live in the Museum, and now they are all housed together in the new Dragon Gallery. It was also a great opportunity to see the Millennium Dragon performing out in the street.
I was also interested because there is a new audio visual display introducing the dragons, and I wrote the script, so I was keen to see how it turned out. It looks great and is enhanced by beautiful graphics by Neil Goodridge and archival footage of the older dragons in action.
There was also some energetic lion dancing and dragon dancing performed by the Chinese Youth Society of Melbourne. And of course lots of fireworks.
These Chinese dragons are the highlight of my Melbourne Dragons Tour.
