Tang Dynasty Theatre Show Xi’an

Xi'an Tang Dynasty Show

Tang Dynasty Theatre Show Xi’an. I was originally going to incorporate the below into another post but I loved the show so much I’ve created a post just for itself. We stayed in the Bell Tower hotel in central Xi’an and decided to go to a show organised by the hotel, just to check out Chinese culture. We went to see a Tang Dynasty show which is a musical show designed to represent the Tang Dynasty that ruled China from AD618 to 907.

Unfortunately this show was a bit mixed. I thought the music was ok but we were sat a long way from the stage and the service while quite friendly was really pushy. Our waiter who brought us our show meal kept describing everything twice as well as asking for a report to be ticked and commented at the end of the show for her service. When I’m in the Far East, it’s cool that people make an effort to speak to me (good for their tourism) but it’s so much easier if they just talk Chinese to Liv as she speaks perfect Chinese.

We also went to another show in Jiuzhaigou but we left before it even started. Liv’s father’s uncle, who we stayed with in Chengdu for one night, arranged a coach trip to Jiuzhaigou but it was plain shit. Sorry for the language but it was that bad. We spent 10 hours on a coach getting there, the hotel was falling apart, the rooms were filthy and we were being eaten by mosquitos.  The thing that really angered me was when we sat down for a show in a theatre over the road and the dis-organised usher went “hello, move!” in a really bad way (we did nothing wrong). I’m sorry but if you talk to me like that in the UK I will punch you.

Anyway, back to Xian. We left a bit disappointed but Liv had heard about a more famous show which we thought we’d try to get tickets for. We bought some tickets online but the best thing is we had a table right in the front row. The show was really superb. The orchestra was really really good and the dancing and performing was excellent. If you’re going to Xi’an and would like the name of the theatre let me know and I’ll ask Liv but definitely worth a visit if you go to China.
