Shaanxi opera

Xi'an Entertainment

Commonly known as Qinqiang, Shaanxi Opera is among the oldest ones in China. Based on folk singing and dancing in ancient Shaanxi and Gansu areas, it was initially formed and later became matured in the Ming Dynasty (1271-1368). Sonorous and exciting singing is a distinctive feature, making the opera another cultural spectacle in Xian. And the locals are crazy about the opera. It is said that they can survive from a lack of flavors in dishes but could not live without Shaanxi Opera. Either when celebrating the birth of a new child, or the wedding of a new couple, Shaanxi opera is always a necessity.
