Tibetan Opera Shows, a part of the annual Shoton, or Yogurt Festival, attracted tourists and locals on Monday to Lhasa, capital of Tibet autonomous region.

Starting on Friday, the seven-day event is a key activity of the gala and a draw for local residents who brave the burning sun and rain to enjoy the opera.

The operas are shown in the city's Dzongyab Lukhang and Norbu Lingka parks. Apart from watching different operas during the week, local residents also use the time to gather and have picnics.

Tenzin Lodro, head of the Chokor Tse Tibetan Opera Troupe, said his troupe was invited by the city government to perform operas during the Shoton Festival, and his troupe was supposed to put on two shows.
