Also at the Expo, the Chinese province of Yun Nan is being highlighted with Yun Nan week.
But rather than producing a fully traditional display of the province's rich culture, the Yun Nan Pavilion has staged a musical named "Love Story in LiJiang".
The show's blending of the traditional with the modern has won over the audience.
|Yun Nan Pavilion has staged a musical named "Love Story in LiJiang".|
As its name suggests, this musical depicts a love story, but this one includes marriage problems that confront people in their stressful urban lives, and goes on to examine the true meaning of happiness. It incorporates Yunnan's folk music into the modern play.
The musical also presents the natural scenery and ethnic culture of Yunnan.
Li Jiang, where the story takes place, is a famous tourist destination in Yunnan province, with its World's Relics "Old Town of LiJiang" -- a well-preserved old city of ethnic minorities with a history of over 800 years.
