Epic theatrical performances set on a lake have been growing in popularity in
China ever since legendary Chinese film director Zhang Yimou choreographed the
stunning “Impression” show in Lijiang.
But you do not need to travel that far to take in one of these wonderful shows.
Dali has its own outdoor theatre where you can catch breathtaking performances
of epic choreographed song and dance routines alongside stunning light shows.
The Eye of Dali Dream Theatre shows take place on the North reservoir, on Cheng
Dong Lu, in the north-east corner of Dali Old Town.
The theatre puts on two separate shows each day. The day time performances
depict local culture, while evening shows portray love and courtship.
The shows are suitable for all ages and really bring to life the ancient culture and traditions of the Bai people in spectacular fashion.
Highly recommended for any visitor coming to Dali.
Tickets priced at 180 yuan can be purchased direct from the theater, but a better option might be to inquire at one of the popular Dali guesthouses who can usually arrange a discounted price.
