Dream of Dunhuang Dance Drama from Lanzhou China

The mammoth dance drama Dream of Dunhuang composed by Lanzhou Opera House premiered at the Chinese Theater in Beijing on April 24, 2000, to a great success. The debut also marked the perfect start of an incredibly successful artistic creation.

Over the past 19 years, the drama Dream of Dunhuang has been successfully performed more than 1,300 times around the world. Lanzhou Opera House perfectly presents the profound culture of Dunhuang Mogao Grottoes to millions of spectators in the form of Chinese folk dance, known as "movable Dunhuang".

Since its debut, the drama has won several awards such as the "Five Ones" Project Award conferred by the Publicity Department of the Central Committee of the CPC, the "Lotus Award" in China National Dance Competition and the "Wenhua Grand Prize" in China.

Moreover, the drama toured many European countries in Europe and the US in the past several years. Its unprecedented spectacular performance is second to none among the original Chinese dance drama works. Dream of Dunhuang has become the top works among the original Chinese dance dramas and classic works among national dance dramas, as well as a successful example of Chinese dance drama with "multiple performances and multiple outputs".
