2 shows – 2/10 & 3/10 @ 7:30pm

The classic Chinese dance story The Legend of Dunhuang promises to thrill Australian audiences with colourful pageantry, stunning choreography and an unforgettable tale of honour, love and hope.

Hailed as “The Oriental Swan Lake”, The Legend of Dunhuang is an enthralling blend of Chinese classical dance with other modern dance forms, which includes the well-known dance thousand hand bodhisattvas and backward Pipa playing. Originally created in 1979, this exquisite production transports the audience to the height of the Silk Road trade with impressive backdrops of breathtaking sceneries, Buddhist art and dazzling costumes.

The Legend of Dunhuang has travelled the globe in the role of cultural ambassador. It has been performed more than 2,800 times for over 4,000,000 audiences in the past 39 years. It was reinvigorated in 2008 to celebrate the Beijing Olympics, which is its current form. The show portrays the magnificent cultural splendours of the Tang Dynasty, presenting ancient China to its modern audiences with energy and flair.
