Tang Dynasty show and dumpling banquet

Xi'an (direct translation of the word parts means west harmony) is the historic and cultural capital of China, our city guide Judy told us.

This gracious performer greeted theatre-goers arriving for the Tang Dynasty Music and Dance show. We sat at tables to watch dancers and singers in exquisite costumes on gorgeously coloured sets. During the show, we were served an amazing variety of tiny and delectable dumplings. The sesame duck was modeled on that bird, and the goldfish dumplings had fan tails and green peas for eyes. Taste-wise, my fave was the purple sweet potato dumpling.

After performing in the choir with various musicians in five concert halls in five Chinese cities, it was a relief to sit in the audience for a change.
