To observe the 40-year anniversary of Reform and Opening Up, the 2018 Daonong Gala chose “Encounter Blossom” as the theme. While sharing joy together, the 200 guests have felt the strength on the shoulders of entrepreneurs. In the three chapters called “Happiness”, “Warmth” and “Strength”, the entrepreneurs staged their self-made performance to reflect upon their 40 years of venture and express their anticipation for the future
“Every step of progress takes time, and everyone feels helpless in the face of time, but there is light in the time, reaching the light is to achieve eternality…”The Gala’s theme “Shining Moments” implies that every success is the outcome of arduous work and has endured the test of time
All the scenarios of this year’s gala were based on a simulated airport. At 8 pm, all the passengers stepped into the boarding gate of “Daonong Flight” while the singer was singing out loud. The theme “Traiblazers” signifies the features of the entrepreneurs: a group of tireless people always on the road.
At 8 pm, Daonong Gala started on time. The opening show was “the 21st Century Interview with Tagore” starring the CEC President Liu Chuanzhi, CCTV Hosts Wang Xiaoya and Zhang Yu. Their performance pumped up the crowd. The following performances by the entrepreneurs were even more exciting
The grand occasion was brimming with excitement. Some entrepreneurs showcased their talent, such as the Guzheng, a traditional Chinese music instrument, played by Li Shufu, which has taken the audience by surprise; and some teamed up with the artists in the show. Moreover, the original performances, debating, role exchange, and monologues behind the scenes of the annual events, took turns on stage, creating one climax after another
