As the ancient capital city which hosted 13 dynasties in Chinese history, Xian boasts a rich culture, of which the Tang Dynasty (618AD-907AD) music and dance is revered as the most graceful and splendid form to show the prosperous civilization at that time. It is one of the Top Ten Xian Activities which most visitors should not miss.
The Tang Dynasty Music & Dance Show combines the music and dance of the past dynasties, absorbing the essence of the minority groups and foreign cultures, creating a show that fully depicts the prosperous Tang Dynasty folk customs. During the one hour show, beautiful girls wearing long sleeved,colorful Tang Dynasty dresses sing merrily and dance gracefully, accompanied by the classic national orchestra with ancient musical instruments such as the bell, drum, lyra and zither, and poets in Tang Dynasty costumes read the ancient verses and songs.
Three of the most representative music stanzas are the "Spring Outing", "The Feather Dress Dance" and "The Warriors Triumphal Dance ".  The "Spring Outing" depicts a group of young girls returning from a spring outing, dancing and singing. Their beautiful green dresses, long sleeves and graceful gestures make them look like the spring fairies. "The Feather Dress Dance" was created by Lady Yang, the favorite concubine of Emperor Xuan Zong in the Tang Dynasty. According to the legend, Xuan Zong dreamed that he traveled to the palace of the moon, where he met some celestial women dressed in feathers like rosy clouds dancing in the sky. After he awoke, he told the story to Lady Yang, who then created and performed this dance according to the Emperor's recollection. The "Warrior Triumphal Dance”, which was about Li Shimin, the second Tang Emperor who claimed himself Prince of Qin during the war before the founding of the dynasty, vividly shows the morale of his powerful commanding troops.
In local theaters, dinner usually accompanies a show. For dinner, you may choose between local dishes or the Dumpling Banquet. While enjoying the show, you will feel like you have been transported back to the Tang Dynasty experiencing the Tang court life and social customs. More importantly, you will have a thorough understanding of the history of traditional Chinese music and dance. All this is will give you great insight into the age-old Chinese culture.

After the show, your driver will transfer you back to your hotel.
