Song of Everlasting Sorrow

Song of Everlasting Sorrow Show

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 lead to a coup d’état and rebels murder 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 : 1 hr
