Owner description: Everyone will meet at the lobby of Tang Dynasty Palace by 7:00pm for you to get a ticket with your name. Enjoy the Splendid Tang Dynasty Music and Dance Show with fabulous music and dancing of Tang Dynasty, China's golden age. The show is also a different way for you to get to know the historical culture of ancient Xian city. What is great about this excursion is that it combines two great elements in one tour - an entertaining show and dumpling banquet that indulge all your senses. The dumpling banquet comes with approx. 18 varieties of dumplings including pork, chicken, mushroom and duck with leeks, carrots, lotus roots and more. The dumpling banquet starts around 7:00pm and after dinner you will enjoy the Tang Dynasty Music and Dance Show. The show ends about 9:40pm and the tour ends at the Tang Dynasty Palace.

A must watch performance if you are in love with dance and art, as it is combine beautiful ballet, traditional dance, pretty animated backdrop and choreography.
They have different types of tickets, you can purchase it onsite but recommend to book it in advance. For show only ticket, try to come around 20-30min before door open coz you need to queue to get good seat.
The place just few minutes walk from exitD of Nanshaomen station.

A group from our Viking tour of the Yangtze River (plus cities not on the river) from Shanghai to Beijing attended this marvelous dinner theater while in Xi’an. Our wonderful Viking guide, “Francis”, gave us a full explanation of the story we were about to see on the way to the theater, and the show had English subtitles on side screens throughout as well. The magnificent lighting, music provided by a full orchestra in resplendent uniforms, multi-media effects, and dramatic performances made for a wonderful evening. In addition, we enjoyed a multi-course Chinese dinner with rice wine in the theater before and during the show.

Highly Recommended!

Took in the show after dinner and was amazed. The show is a historical dance through the Tang Dynasty. The costumes are beautiful and the dancers wonderful. It only lasts about an hour, but it is a wonderful way to spend part of an evening in Xi’an.

We booked the Tang Dynasty Show and Dumpling Banquet through our guide, who recommended it. The restaurant was very busy with a lively atmosphere, the food was plentiful and the dumplings containing various fillings were delicious. After the meal we were shown to our seats which all had tables so we could have a drink whilst we watched the show, which itself was really colourful and entertaining. The dancers put a great deal of effort into it. A must if you visit Xian but book in advance.
