Like in a movie ...

Anyone who thought that the evening was over after the greeting in the opera house was mistaken. But quite enormous ...

Our delegation around Tan Dun was invited by the city of Xi'an to a "ceremony". What at first sounded like an official welcome ritual of urban cultural politicians turned out to be a proverbial breathtaking show around the old city wall of Xi'an. We follow in a kind of procession countless Chinese actors wrapped in traditional robes, who celebrated a welcome ritual of ancient China for us with dance and play to an opulent west-eastern orchestral sound. An overwhelming light direction did the rest, so that one felt like in a kind of Chinese Hollywood film!

In the wake of Tan Dun, who was symbolically given the golden city key during the ceremony, we crossed the bridge to the city gate - and were admitted as "friends". Soo... Puccini's Turandot must feel like an original backdrop!

Welcome to 21st century China. Tradition and modernity are not contradictory. What an experience! We have arrived - and tomorrow the rehearsals for our "Buddha Passion" will finally begin.
