A 10-day light show, the “Oriental Light”, charting the history of the city of Shanghai, kicked off on Oct 17 at the Oriental Pearl Tower city plaza, with three shows staged each day from 7pm to 9pm, each lasting 15 minutes.

The show features four parts, the Prologue, City Lights, Art of Glow, and Pursuit of Dreams, and sees a lighting ceremony for the 20th anniversary of the Oriental Pearl Tower.

In City Lights, the development of a modern city was revealed through multimedia methods of 3D deformation. The Art of Glow showed the integration of art through spatial switching.

In addition, Shanghai's futuristic landscape of skyscrapers were also roped in to perform, decked out in brand-new neon lights to stage a city-wide synchronized light show as part of the ceremony.

Built in 1994, the Oriental Pearl Tower is a mixed-use building with telecommunications transmitters broadcasting over 50 miles, a hotel, a restaurant, and several observation decks. Despite a modern look with metal and concrete, the design is rooted in traditional Chinese culture.
