MGM Ignites Jin Yong's Drama Legacy at Barra
Timeless Tales to Trendy Social Posts: The Jin Yong Drama Exhibition Brings Chivalrous Values to Life
The exhibition showcases an array of exquisitely crafted drama costumes. A series of TVB Jin Yong drama clips are also being played at the exhibition.

Dr. Louis Cha (Jin Yong), a literary giant of Chinese literature, wrote 15 captivating wuxia novels during his lifetime. These novels have not only been appreciated in literature, but have also significantly influenced contemporary cinema, television, video games, and various creative industries. They have profoundly shaped modern Chinese pop culture, acting as timeless cultural symbols across generations. MGM has collaborated with Hong Kong Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB) to present the “‘Into the World of Wuxia Legends’ Jin Yong Wuxia Drama Costumes and Weapons Exhibition at Barra”. The exhibition aims to immerse visitors in the vibrant world of wuxia and offer tourists and Macau residents a unique experience that showcases Jin Yong’s tales and the essence of chivalry and pop culture from different perspectives.


The “‘Into the World of Wuxia Legends’ Jin Yong Wuxia Drama Costumes and Weapons Exhibition at Barra”, under MGM’s vision of “Living Art in Style”, has transformed Barra district into a new hub of trendy cultural life. Located in Navy Yard No. 1 and Navy Yard No. 2, the exhibition recreates numerous iconic scenes from eight Jin Yong’s wuxia drama series, including Book and Sword, Crimson Sabre, The Flying Fox of The Snowy Mountain 1999, The Condor Heroes 95, The Heaven Sword & Dragon Sabre 2000, The Demi-Gods & Semi-Devils, State of Divinity, and The Duke of Mount Deer. With interactive photo-taking spots, the exhibition enables many fans of Jin Yong drama to immerse themselves in his wuxia world.


The exhibition showcases an array of exquisitely crafted drama costumes and a collection of realistically made props, such as the “Heavenly Sword” and “Dragon Slayer Saber”, and the “Condor” from The Condor Heroes 95. In addition, a series of TVB Jin Yong drama clips are being played at the exhibition, offering visitors a cinematic, immersive experience that transcends time and space. The exhibition area also features a pop-up bookstore that sells souvenirs under the theme of this exhibition, aiming to pass down Jin Yong’s literary classics.


To further develop Barra district as a destination for relaxation and entertainment, MGM is partnering with local small and medium-sized food service businesses at Navy Yard No. 2 to operate food trucks offering snacks such as canal-cover-shaped Macau-style egg waffles, handmade ice cream, burgers, and drink specialties, aiming to promote local delicacies, open up new opportunities for these businesses, and make the district more vibrant.


Meanwhile, MGM COTAI presents the “MGM X Ren Zhe — Legends of Chivalry Selling Exhibition” featuring captivating sculptures and paintings by contemporary Chinese artist Ren Zhe. Exhibits include the stainless-steel warrior sculptures for which Ren Zhe is best known, as well as his Jin Yong character sculptures. MGM aims to connect the chivalrous spirit in Barra district and MGM COTAI and attract residents and tourists to wander between the two exhibitions as well as through the Cotai district and UNESCO world heritage sites in Macau. In addition, MGM has partnered with Xiaohongshu’s exclusive art platform to launch the “Macau Artful Walks” campaign, guiding tourists to explore Macau's extensive 'Travel+' offerings through a specially curated cultural and travel route.


The “‘Into the World of Wuxia Legends’ Jin Yong Wuxia Drama Costumes and Weapons Exhibition at Barra” will run until July 30, 2024. For more information on the exhibition or ticketing details, please visit:
