What we love to see is in the year 1988, we were the first theater restaurant in China and the only place where plays the Tang Dynasty music and dance.
Nowadays,following with our success, many traditional shows in different part of China are being staged for the different people all over the world. Even in Xi’an city, more than 3 different places have this kind of Tang style music and dance.
Untill now we are still the most luxurious one in xi’an.
We expect that more and more traditional shows could be emerged for all the people who are interested in Chinese culture, and we will give you the best show of Chinese history.
For centuries, Xi'an, the ancient capital city of 13 dynasties from 1067 BC, has been renowned for its restoration of the Middle Kingdom's rich cultural heritage. It is the home of the famed terracotta warriors, ancient tombs of emperors long gone, 4,000 ruins and mausoleums and more than 120,000 remnants of art and architecture. It is China's natural museum of history.
And bringing this all together in the form of modern song and dance is the Tang Dynasty Theatre Restaurant, where visitors can sample this cultural experience in an ambience befitting the emperors of Tang (618-907 AD).
Tang music and dance not only inherit the songs and dance of the preceding dynasties but also assimilate the new and exotic cultures that came along the Silk Road. Xi'an was at the crossroads where travelers, merchants and indigenous minority tribes converged to trade within the Tang cultural predominance of this great ancient civilization. The Tang Dynasty was distinguished as the most progressive and prosperous era in the history of China and its music and dance symbolize the splendor and the glory of the Chinese civilization.

Traditional Chinese folk dances originate from sacrificial rituals, where rhythmic movements and prayers combined to appease the gods and progressed with the development of Chinese culture. It was during the flourishing Tang Dynasty that these dances became a graceful art form. Combined with authentic Tang musical instruments - bells, drums and zithers - the show is a cultural experience that is both extravagant and entertaining.

Years of painstaking practice allow our modern artists to reproduce our impression of the splendor and the glory of this great civilization. The Tang Dynasty Song and Dance Troupe consist of highly gifted and amazing artists who have received years of rigorous training in the arts. At each performance there are 104 artists presenting the show, which has become internationally renowned as the most accurate rendition of the richness of life in that golden age. Also, within the troupe are 30 master musicians who play various Chinese and western instruments, including the hand-plucked stringed Pi-Pa, Ruan,Gu-Zheng, Er-hu, Yang-qin, Di-zi, Sheng, Pai Xiao, 24 tone Bronze chime-bells, Suo-Na and a group of percussion instruments.
This performance - the Tang Cultural Show - may be in total contrast to the contemporary musicals of Broadway and Las Vegas, but is nevertheless hailed by visitors as the "Lido" of the Orient.
