neutral  Nigel Jones: Usually said 'Gala Performance' this is only used if the show is just performed one time as a special event, so take care with its use
26 mins

agree  Wenjer Leuschel: 大汇演 could be just once as a special event. For instance, 群星大匯演.// But it's, like Nigel said, Gala Performance. // Okie dokie, got it.

  -> Thanks, Wenjer. IMHO the event itself in most cases would be called a performance gala, or gala celebration. It would be referred to as a gala performance in critics'commentaries.
