The live performance at night in Yangshuo

The Story of Miss Sanjie Liu
The performance is based on a Chinese musical movie made in 1961. The story is about a lady called Sanjie Liu who lived in the city of Liuzhou (2 hours from Guilin) where she worked in the fields. Sanjie in Chinese means 'the Third Sister', Liu is her family name.
Sanjie Liu was well known in Liuzhou for her great singing voice. She would always sing while she worked in the fields. Most of her songs were about the repression felt by her and the farmers from the local landlords who over taxed them. She had to leave Liuzhou for her own safety and came to Yangshuo on a bamboo raft and settled here.
Yangshuo's farmers also had problems with their landlord and Liu Sanjie took up singing against them. The local landlord had her kidnapped, but she escaped after the local farmers staged an uprising against the landlord. The locals agreed with the landlord that they did not have to pay taxes if they could sing better than the landlord, something which they always did.
Then under the Big Banyan tree, Sanjie Liu tossed her love ball to her loved one, Brother Aniu (Aniu in Chinese means Bufflo), the men accepted and they lived happily ever after.
How to get there
Plan A - Take a golf car: a type of public transportation service in old town of Yangshuo, pickup place for the show is at the front door of Yangshuo Pradise Ressort, the golf car can take 9 persons one time, and it cost RMB 20-30 one way to the show place, you can pay the driver RMB 20-30, ask the driver to go right away; or you might wait for other passengers, and share the cost together.
