Chinese director Zhang Yimou's first project since the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics will be an extension of his "Impression" musical series.

Zhang, the chief director of the Olympic spectacular, visited the scenic Wuyi Mountains in southeastern China's Fujian Province on Monday to prepare for the outdoor "Impression: Dahongpao" show, Xinhua news agency reported.

Wang Chaoge and Fan Yue, co-directors of the previous "Impression" musicals, accompanied him.

Dahongpao is the name of a type of oolong tea that originated in the Wuyi Mountains, where the natural landscapes will serve as the backdrop for the "Impression: Dahongpao" premiere in October next year.

The previous three "Impression" musicals were staged near the Lijiang River in Guilin, Jade Dragon Snow Mountain in Yunnan Province, and Hangzhou's West Lake.
