China's First Tang Dynasty Palace Dance and Music Show Empress of the Great Tang

Learning a legendary life story of a great empress of Chin and enjoying a splendid glory of the Tang Empire

This evening in this grand theater of art the Shaanxi Tourism Corporation presents to you China's first Tang Dynasty palace dance and music show Empress of the Great Tang. The story is based on the life of the famous historical figure in China: Empress Wu Ze-tian of the Tang Dynasty(618-907 CE). Empress Wu was born in 624 CE and became a concubine of the Tang Emperor when she was only 14 years old. Years of living in the palace had made her tough and smart, growing up from a simple and innocent young girl into a hardened and sophisticated court politics player.

With her wisdom, talents and persistence, she managed to become the first wife of the emperor soon and in 690 CE eventually ascended the throne to be the empress in her own right after her husband died. With a classical Chinese live orchestra and a state-of-art stage design, this five-part dance and music show will bring back to us the legendary Empress Wu Ze-tian and the glory and splendor of the Great Tang Empire.
