  Where did the show come from?

  Actually, the real tang dynasty music and dance show, as an art form, had come into the ash of history long long time ago. Until 1980s, in order to boost Xi’an tourist industry, Xi’an’s Shannxi provincial Song & Dance troupe finally decided to re-appear music and dance show of Tang dynasty to modern people as a tourist attraction for promoting Chinese ancient Tang Dynasty culture to the world. Later many Chinese artists made great efforts to recreate the Tang dynasty music and dance show through a year of studying existing heritages about Tang dynasty culture, such as old written books and faded paintings as well as numerous frescoes, sculptures, carvings of Dunhuang, Luoyang and Yungang. In 1982, a modern Tang dynasty music and dance show come into the eyes of people, and immediately won great reputation from home and abroad. Proved to be very successful, it was also highly praised by a delegation from UNESCO. By now, it has toured many cities of China as well as several foreign countries such as Japan, Russia, Korea, Singapore, Norway, Denmark, etc.
