Tour description provided by Viator

The Everlasting Sorrow Show was written by Bai Juyi, a notable poet in the Tang Dynasty. It tells a moving love story between Emperor Xuanzong and his concubine Yang Yuhuan, who is regarded as one of the Four Beauties in ancient China. This tour will take you to enjoy the fabulous water stage performance adapted by the famous poem. The live show, taking the famous Mt. Lishan as stage background, perfectly revives the glory and doom of the Tang Dynasty, along with Emperor Xuanzong and Yang Yuhuan’s grief at separation and joy in union.
The driver and English-speaking guide will meet you at your downtown hotel lobby at 6:30pm and directly drive to Huaqing Palace (Please note ticket for the show doesn't allow you to visit Huaqing Hot Spring. The ticket is just for Everlasting Sorrow Performance). If you arrive at Huaqing Palace earlier, you could take a walk on the square opposite to Huaqing Palace where you could see the night leisure life of local people, and also stroll at the street for local crafts. Soon it will be time to appreciate the open air stage performance: Song of Ever Lasting Sorrow. It is integrated with dancing, colorful costumes, acrobatics, original music, LED video, laser, fantasy and other forms of performance. Each chapter of the performance repeats what had happened in different time of Xuanzong Era in the Tang Dynasty, and the soul-touching love story between two characters . After the show, you will be transferred back to your hotel at about 10pm. Special note: The Everlasting Regret Show is only performed in the evening from April 1st through October 31st. It's not available in winter days.
