Introduction of the show

"The Song of Everlasting Sorrow" is China's first grand-scale landscape historical dance drama, inspired by the love story of Emperor Tang Xuanzong and Consort Yang Guifei. It beautifully captures the essence of Bai Juyi's renowned poem of the same name. 

Set during the prosperous Tang Dynasty, the story unfolds as Emperor Tang Xuanzong summons and deeply cherishes Yang Yuhuan in the palace. However, tragedy strikes during the An Lushan Rebellion when soldiers force Yang Yuhuan's death at Ma Wei Slope, leaving the Emperor heartbroken. Their spirits eventually reunite in the heavenly palace, expressing their longing and vowing to be eternal partners. 

The captivating performance of "The Song of Everlasting Sorrow" takes place against the backdrop of Mount Li, utilizing Huashan Palace's Nine-Dragon Lake as the stage. Through advanced technology, the set design encompasses pavilions, terraces, corridors, willow trees, and the lake itself, creating mesmerizing effects such as twinkling starlit skies, cascading misty waterfalls, and a blazing sea of fire. This seamless fusion of history, nature, culture, tradition, and contemporary elements presents a magical symphony, earning accolades as a remarkable artistic masterpiece - a "Chinese version of Romeo and Juliet" - praised by international audiences.
