Virtual Vision from Our Tourists

Amazing

We went to see the show in the Culture Park after our hotpot dinner. We paid 260 RMB per person. The theater is outdoor theater with fans on the top. The program was composed of opera, short comedy show, puppet, show, hand shadow, music instruments mimic horse and people conversation, and the face (mask) changing show with fire spitting. My teenage son and I did not lose our attention throughout the show (about one hour) even we just arrived at Chengdu (from Kathmandu). The face changing segment in the show is just amazing. We kept saying it is impossible. One time the performers even walked to the audience from the stage and changed their mask right in front of the audience! We went to Kungfu show in Beijing, and Tang Dynasty show in Xi'An. This show is far more the most interesting and entertaining one. What a great start for our Chengdu tour!
