Tonight we went to the most amazing show. It was called "Impression Sanjie Liu." It was directed by the same director who did Impressions Lijiang and the Beijing Olympics. 

The show itself was on the water of the Li River. An ampitheater was built facing the water, with 12 hills as a backdrop. Local villagers, including fishermen and children, are the performers (over 600 in all). The performers are chosen because they represent the people of the Li River.

The show is based upon the story of "Sanjie Liu," a legendary Zhuang girl who was known for her singing. There is no plot, but the songs and scenes attempt to depict daily life for the villagers. (Zhuang people are also known for their voices and singing.)

Although it's difficult to capture the beauty of this performance, I am posting some pictures below. I'll also attempt to post one of the videos that we took.
