Involving about 400 members of the Bai, Yi, Miao and Tibetan ethnic groups, the show presents the audience with the lifestyles of different ethnicities. Although there is no specific theme, the audience cannot take his/her eyes off the amazing scenes. Colorful and surprising, the show is a beauty. Traditional songs, dances, music, drums, horse racing and fighting, the audience are immersed in the show.

A Famous Director

The show was directed by Zhang Yimou, famous Chinese director. yet you’ve probably remembered the opening ceremony of the 2008 Olympics taking place in Beijing. This impressive ceremony was the creation of Zhang Yimou. Maybe a little less known, he also directed the film “Bride and Concubines.” These shows have generated such a reputation that he has created 5 shows thus far, each in a different region of China.
