Xinhua - English: "'Dynamic Yunnan' to stage world tour
Beijing, April 28 -- China's large-scale dance drama 'Dynamic Yunnan' will stage its world tour beginning this September.
The outdoor dance musical has been seen as an outstanding innovation on the Chinese stage in recent years.
China's entertainment giant, Pegasus & Taihe Company, has allied with the biggest performance companies in the United States and Europe to promote the world tour of the dancing musical.
There will be more than 450 performances conducted during the European Tour in September. Between 2006 and 2010, over 1000 performances will also be staged around the world.
'Dynamic Yunnan' illustrates the richness of Yunnan minorities' culture by blending the essence of traditional songs with folk dance.
The original ethnic dance musical masterpiece was created by Chinese dancer Yang Liping, who became an overnight success in 1986 after performing her solo dance 'The Spirit of the Peacock' in a national contest.
