The Impression of Yunnan

 The Impression of Yunnan Coming Back to Beijing

The Impression of Yunnan, a grand, original ethnic dance musical, is coming back to Beijing again and will run at the Poly Theater from the 20th to the 23rd of this month. Although this marks the third time for the performance to run in Beijing, it still arouses great passion among Beijing's audience. According to the Poly Theater's ticket office, most of the tickets have been sold out, so the organizer has decided to put on an extra show on January 22.

Since the dance musical first debuted in August 2003, the troupe has toured 26 cities in Mainland China, staging nearly 500 performances, and enjoying high compliments from the dance circle as well as from domestic and overseas audiences. After touring in the United States and South American countries last November, the troupe expects to visit Australia, the United Kingdom, France, and Japan later this year. The Impression of Yunnan was also listed in the "Top Ten Plays" in 2004-2005 of the "National Project to the Distillation of Stage Art."

Seventy percent of the performers are local residents of ethnic minorities, aged from 6 to 70. There will be more than 600 sets of hand-made costumes collected from villages in Yunnan, 180 unique masks in the style of Yunnan ethnic minorities, and 68 original drums. Some of the stage settings like bullheads, Tibetan praying stones (Mani stones), and Buddhist praying wheels are also genuine.

The performance in Beijing will be the classical version of The Impression Of Yunnan, including the "Prelude (Born of the Earth)," "Sun," "Earth," "Home," "Fire," "Pilgrimage," and "Epilogue (The Soul of Peacock)," about 100 minutes in all.
