Song of Everlasting Sorrow at Huaqing Hotspring
长恨歌 The Song of Everlasting Sorrow show is a spectacular dramatic interpretation of famous Chinese poet Bai Juyi’s masterpiece, “The Song of Everlasting Sorrow”. In the story, a Tang Dynasty Emperor (618-906) falls deeply in love with a beautiful young concubine. His love distracts him from his ruling duties, causing unrest that led to a coup d’état, when rebels murdered his beloved. The show is a visual triumph, combining music, dance, lavish costumes, dazzling lights and a unique stage that is partially submerged in a lake.
Note this show takes place at Huaqing Hotspring, about 1 hour outside of the city, so it needs to be organized together with a visit to the Terracotta Warriors and the Huaqing Hotspring, which are in the same area.
Average time for this activity (in hrs):
Opening hours: 7:30pm until 8:40pm
