Impression Liu Sanjie

Impression Liu Sanjie is a world-renowned outdoor musical with a cast of more than 500 singers and dancers. The show was originally created by the famous Chinese director in 2004. More significantly, the performance venue on a riverbank surrounded by 12 mountains is the largest natural theatre in the world which takes advantage of the water of the Li River as its stage and jagged skyline of the karst peaks as its backdrop.

The performance is based on a Chinese musical movie made in 1961. The story revolved around a lady called Liu SanJie who lived in the city of Liuzhou where she worked in the fields. Liu Sanjie was well known in Liuzhou for her great singing voice. She always sang beautiful songs when working in the fields. Most of her songs condemned the repression of the local landlords who over-taxed Liu Sanjie and other farmers. Eventually, she had no choice but to leave Liuzhou for her own safety and came to Yangshuo on a bamboo raft.
