Tour description provided by Viator
Experience a spellbinding performance of the 'Impression Sanjie Liu' show directed by the world-famous director, Zhang Yimou. With the stage set right on the Li River itself, this show will leave you mesmerized at how the performers seem to be floating on the river as they portray life and culture of the local Yangshuo people. Learn about the legend of the 'Song Fairy' Liu Sanjie through this dreamy interpretation that uses a stunning natural backdrop of the Li River and karst mountains.
Stretch the limits of your imagination as you watch the mesmerizing performance of Impression Sanjie Liu, a legendary story about a girl named Liu Sanjie from the Tang Dynasty who was known far and wide for her great singing voice, and would later be honored as the ‘Song Fairy.’
A private vehicle will pick you up from your Yangshuo hotel and take you directly to the gorgeous open-air theater with the stage set right on the Li River! Impression Sanjie Liu combines classic Liu Sanjie folk songs and stories of exotic fishing culture of the Li River, reflecting the harmony between human beings and nature. Be enthralled by the movements of the hundreds of performers dressed in different clothing styles of Zhuang, Miao and Yao ethnic groups – these costumes light up, making their dances more vivid in the dark setting! The mist, rain, river, hills and moonlight come together perfectly, giving the show its unique natural background.
This masterpiece, which took over three years of planning and design, was directed by the world-renowned Chinese film director Zhang Yimou, the same director who directed the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. This 1-hour show features more than 600 actors and actresses, all local residents and farmers of the area around the Li River.
The theater holds over 2,000 audience members. You will have the choice from five ticket types for the different levels of the open-air theater. C-level seats are backless stools on the lower level. Both the VIP seats on the B-level and President seats on the covered A level provide a better panoramic view of the entire performance.
