Chinese classic "Broadway" & elegant and poised “Tang music and dance"

The Tang Dynasty is the heyday of China's political, economic and cultural. Since came to the Chang'an City, we naturally wanted to experience the music and dance culture of the Tang Dynasty. There are only two Tang music and dance shows in Xi'an City, one of which is the Tang Yue Gong, near our hotel, and is said to be the main reception of dinner and performances for foreign tour groups, so the price is natural not cheap.

Walk from the antechamber of Tang Yue Gong to the two scarlet palace doors, there is a magnificent theater, surrounding with the Tang Dynasty murals, lotus chandeliers on the zenith, as well as the lanterns on the tablecloth, all full of Tang Style.
