Impression Liu San Jie, The World Largest Natural Theater

Impression Liu San Jie is a famous play held every night in Yangshuo. We heard so much about this play and this was totally the highlight of our trip to Yangshuo. In order to reach the seats, we had to walk a fair bit from the parking lot. The entrance is right at the pagoda.

You will not see the usual stage, lighting, camera, and sound system. This is because Impression Liu San Jie is the world largest natural theater. The play utilises the waters of the Li River as its Stage, with twelve mist shrouded hills and the heavens as its backdrop. Mist, rain, moonlight, the hills and their inverted reflections in the river act as the stage props. The seats are designed on terraces so everyone will be able to see the performance without being blocked.

The production of the play took 5 years and 5 months and it involves more 6,000 performers. There are a lot of residents of Yangshuo who work as the performers during the night while doing their daily job during the day. Some of the performers are still young, in school age.

The Impression of Liu San Jie tells a story derived from the daily life of the people living around the Li River. From these stories, you will gain a realistic impression on the background of Sanjie, a fairy singer, her birthplace and the beauty of the folk songs' hometown.

This part of the play is really amazing. It is basically telling us a story about the daily life of fishermen making a living in the sea. In the middle the whole play changed toward farmers who earn living by planting rice. Awesome play!

The last chapter of the impression is very grand. It involves over 200 ladies forming a long column across the bridge over the Li River. The dresses make the river shines mysteriously. Cool!
