1 Evening Shaanxi Opera & Shadow Play Show
Chinese Traditional Cultural Tour
1 Evening Shaanxi Opera & Shadow Play Show is a great way to experience Chinese traditional culture. We have picked up two highlights for tourists during this 1 evening tour, which we think represent the old culture of Shaanxi province best.
Firstly, the Shadow play. The shadow-play came into being very early in Chinese history. The oldest figures were made of paper. Later, parchment became the widely used material. The wooden or bamboo sticks operate the movement of figures. However, the most important is the so called “life stick”, which leads the whole figure. The figures come very closely against a screen; otherwise, the shadows would become very blurred.
Second, we come to the Shaanxi Opera. Shaanxi opera is one of China’s oldest and most popular opera forms. Moreover, originated at the end of the Ming and the beginning of the Qing Dynasty, different dramas blended with the local dialect, customs, folk music and dances. Basically, it is nice performance with spectacular costumes and traditional instruments.
