Set against the backdrop of Tianmen Mountain, the Tianmen Fox Fairy Show is a marvelous open-air play depicting an old love story between a fox fairy and a human.
The 90-minute show features hundreds of singers and actors with excellent choreography, singing, costumes, sound, lighting, and special effects. There are big screens with English subtitles on the left and right of the stage for the foreigners who don't understand Chinese.
The show has both regular and VIP seats. While the VIP seats are higher up and thus afford a better view over the whole stage, they are farther away from the stage and make it more difficult to see the details of the show, as well as the text on the screens.
If you are visiting in the winter, be sure to wear thick clothes since the show is outdoors and it can get cold at night. In case of rain, you can get a free poncho from the ticketing office.
Show time: 8:15 PM - 9:45 PM (daily)
Ticket prices: 238 RMB to 888 RMB (varies according to the seat position)
The theater is at the entrance of Tianmen Mountain and outside downtown Zhangjiajie. It is recommended that you arrange the return transportation before going to the show since taxis can be hard to find at night. It is better to book the show with a tour or book a ticket with pickup and dropoff service.
