About
A celebration of Xian’s golden age, the Tang Dynasty Show song and dance extravaganza is the city’s signature night out. Prebooking tickets is essential for this popular performance, not least because it’s 7 miles (11 kilometers) out of downtown. Choose between three options—show only, dumpling dinner, and the more sophisticated royal banquet—with or without hotel transfers.

Great fun evening
Sep 2019
Lovely evening out introducing some local history in a fun way - costumes were amazing! Make sure somebody explain the life story of the empress before you go as the english synopsis is extremely brief! Music and stage setting a delight

Good show if you have some spare time
Sep 2019
We enjoyed this show, costumes and staging were fantastic, dancing was good but not perfect. We didn't book their dinner, just arrived for the show, which lasted an hour.

Few days before we watched the Golden Mask show in Beijing, and that was much more impressive than the Tang Dynasty Show.

If you only have time to see this one show in China, then go for it. If you have to choose between this one and teh one in Beijin, chooce the Golden Mask show instead.

Must See while in Xi'an
Jun 2019
I have seen a few Broadway shows but they all seemed to pale to this theater's production. I couldn't take my eyes off the stage, the music, the dancing and all the beautiful traditional wardrobes. Stunning and amazing, my hat off to all involved in making this beautiful Tang Dynasty story.

Beautifully done
Jul 2019 • Friends
The Tang Dynasty performance was amazing! I wasn't expecting much, because I didn't see a lot of reviews, but I was blown away. The traditional music was lovely and the dance was beautifully choreographed to match the music and to express the emotion of the particular scene. In addition, it was also nice to have the English synopsis at the beginning of each act. It was a bit crazy getting to the venue (lots of traffic), but you can take the train to avoid the busy streets. I would highly recommend this performance to people who are planning to visit Xi'an.

Wonderful colourful experiance
Jun 2019 • Couples
The Tang Dynaty show is fantastic, we loved the costumes, the colours were so vibrant, during the performance the commentary is in english, so you can follow the story, we started off with the dumpling meal, probably the best meal we had whilst in china.
Well worth a visit, im not a great one for theatre, but i loved the show.

Colorful Spectacle
Apr 2019 • Couples
My wife skipped this thinking it would be more Chinese opera, but she missed a wonderful show with great music and fabulous dancing. The sets and costumes were a delight. The program in English allowed the table to follow the story.
Dinner was good, but nothing special.
Ask for a front table seat - perpendicular to the stage.

Evening Tang Dynasty Show
May 2019 • Solo
Nice show, liked the side board that said what the show was about since don't understand Chinese or opera very well. Didn't do dumpling dinner. Between choice of biking the city wall and this show should of choice the biking activity instead. Otherwise, if nothing else on your radar it's a good way to fill the evening space.

Tang Dynasty Welcoming Ceremony
Apr 2019 • Couples
This was an unexpected find. The lady in the tourist office recommended it when we were getting tickets to go on the wall. She was very keen that we got the last tickets before they sold and we are glad that we did.
Get there early as you need to walk through the grounds to the back of the palace for the start.
All the show is outside, the first part is at the South Gate. You stand and watch on tiered platforms so the view is fine.
You then walk to 'celebration square' to see the next part of the performance. Several of the costumed performers line the side of the walk - so no need to rush, allow some space to get a good view. You also stand for this next part of the show - but again there are platforms so you can see fine.
Once this has finished you can take pictures with the performers before taking your seat for the last part of the show, set against the backdrop of the city wall.
For some reason the locals like to push and charge to the front so take a leisurely stroll and use the opportunity for photos before finding your seat.
The last part is numerous costumed performances running through Tang history and cultures that traded along the silk route.
We really enjoyed the show. No need for 'VIP' seats we were at the front in C8 & C10 which gave a great view. Price is Y260 each (also includes entrance to the wall)
Glad we stumbled across this find.

Dinner and show
Dumpling dinner was a bit of a disappointment as the dumplings were pretty average. The show was good and was entertaining. Would recommend the show and skip the dumpling dinner
