Dayun Yangzhou will debut in Yangzhou Grand Theatre on Sept 26, presenting the history, culture and spirit of the beautiful city in East China's Jiangsu province.
After its premiere next Monday, the ambitious 70-minute show, which incorporates elements from the region's art, traditions and folk culture, as well as major events in the city's 2,500-year history, will be staged each weekend and during peak tourist seasons in a bid to promote local tourism.

One of the highlights of the show is the spectacular recreation of local landmarks such as the beautiful Geyuan Garden, which is often referred to as one of China's "four famous gardens".
Cutting-edge 3-D projection technology is used to depict the garden during all four seasons, along with the Grand Canal and Yangzhou's old-style cobbled streets.
