Fantastic Performance at The Altitude of 3100 meters

Cathy_joy's photos remind me of another great show we enjoyed last year, called Impression Lijiang. It was put on at the real scene of Yu Long Snow Mountain, when we reached the altitude of 3100 meters.
The performance was completely out doors. Audiences just sat at the center of a lower ground, with a large round stage above, which was built like a huge rock hill around. You may feel like sitting in the fighting field of ancient Rome.
The seats were distributed in the order of ladder, according to the shape of land range, so that people at the back can see what happens at the stage in the front.
What the show mainly presented, to my point of view, is the ethnic culture of different minorities in Yunnan province. Up till now, I can hardly reacall all of them, except Naxi, Moso and Bai...and also a young Moso man, saying he has had 16 wives.Wow! Here you can not judge the behaviors of ethnic groups by law, because they just obey the traditional rules handed down for generations in their community.
Although I can not describe clearly the details of the performance, I often unconciously hum the tune of its theme music Go Home, which is sung in the language of Naxi ethnic minority. Its touching rhythm always automatically brings you to the memory of home and the past...Every time I heard this song, I was deeply moved.
I believe you will have the same feeling as me after enjoying the show.
