What To Expect

Tang Dynasty Show
The tour guide will pick you up from your hotel lobby at around 6:00 pm based on the show schedule, then accompany you to enjoy a wonderful evening of the Dumpling Banquet and the Tang Dynasty Music and Dance Show by public transportation (bus, taxi or Metro based on the hotel location). The Dumpling Banquet dinner starts at around 6:30 pm and the Music and Dance Show begins at 7:30 pm and ends at 8:35 pm. At the end of the show, the tour guide will escort you back to the hotel by public transportation.

The Chinese dumpling has a long history and is an essential part of celebratory meals such as those prepared for the Chinese lunar Spring Festival. No visit to the city is complete unless you have a dumpling dinner.

The Tang Dynasty Music and Dance Show has been on of the most popular attractions since its debut in 1983. The show reproduces the magnificent scenes of the prosperous Tang Dynasty, delighting the audience with fascinating ancient imperial court music and dance.

Marvelous show

Beautiful choreography, costumes and the musicians playing live. Good dancers.
The dumpling dinner before the show is nice, but a bit too much food.
Excellent Show

This show was suggested to us by our tour guide. We figured we should take it in as we were here and had heard great reviews about it.

We arrived for the 6:00 shows and opted to have our dinner afterwards.

The show was really good, the costumes are amazing. Everything was done first class.

After the show our dumpling buffet started. We started with soup, then they brought out three or four different kinds of dumplings at a time in a steamer basket. We ended up have about twelve dumplings. They were all very tasty.

All in all, I would highly recommend this as an evening out.
Have seen many shows and musicals... and this is one of my favorites...

Seen cirque du soliel shows, new york musicals, etc... and this show is one of my favorites. If you are in China you need to see a show about the Tang Dynasty and esp. Wu Zhetian... The theater is clean and classic. The orchestra is top-notch. Performers are just amazing. They also use the entire theatre... using space in the aisles. You get VIP seats (where they also serve free drink for the show) if you get the dinner package. Dinner is served in the restaurant inside the building and is known to be quite good. So go for the dinner package... totally worth it!
Wonderful show!

This was a lot of fun. A dumpling dinner in the restaurant and then a fabulous show. The costumes and dancing were amazing.
Dumplings and dancing

We visited here in August 2019. It was a dumpling dinner and a Tang Dynasty dance show. The food was fairly bland, and there were people selling random souvenirs at the table throughout the dinner. The show was mostly dancing with historical details projected on the wall beside the dancers. A very cultural show and good basic insight into some of China's history.
