This show featuring the dance and music of China has entertained millions of people throughout the world. The traditional arts of China will wow you as it is presented with all its flair, drama, skill, and colour.
Chinese culture is one of the oldest in the world and is steeped in legends and values. With the onset of communism many of the old traditions were lost, which was a shame. This show brings back the old traditions and presents them in a breathtaking way. Over a short period of time the ways of 5,000 years of Chinese culture are presented to you in the most palatable of ways. It ends up being an evening that blends the past with the present.
You will watch various performers do handkerchief dances, folk dances, fan dances, drum dances, and dragon dances. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. The array of colours in the silky and beautiful costumes makes up every colour of the rainbow. After all this wows you then it will continue with solo piano performances, traditional music and singers.
What's not to like? The performers wear stunning costumes, the drumming corps will impress you with their precision and rhythms, the sets are gorgeous, and a full orchestra is at most performances.
