The Tang Dynasty Show in Xi’An 西安

The Tang Dynasty Music and Dance Show has become a classic that has been running since 1982 and has also toured many countries.


Xi'An, formerly known as Chang'An, was the imperial capital during 13 dynasties. Of these, the Tang Dynasty (618 - 907) was perhaps the most glorious of all.


The Tang was open to outside influences, taking in the best of various art forms of not only past dynasties but also the ethnic groups in China as well as central and western Asia, including a wide range of unusual musical instruments and a variety of techniques in painting, sculpting, patterns, costume design, poetry, singing and dancing.


The performances have their roots in folk arts, developing over thousands of years. The show presented today is a recreation of traditional entertainment based on much historical research.


Staged with a visualization of the Tang imperial court as its setting, the production manifests a unique classical style with features typical of Xi'An.
