We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

E Palace Tune

E palace tune (阿宫腔), one of the ancient operas in Shaanxi province, derives from the royal music and dance of Qin Dynasty. The name is got from the Epang palace. Epang palace was built by Qin Shihuang, with an aim to take it as the political center.


















It is said that in the end of Qin Dynasty, Xiang Yu broke into Xianyang, burnt Epang palace down. Parts of palace maids escaped from Epang palace, stranding in the folk. At the same time, they also carried the royal dance and sing to the folk and spread quickly. Gradually, the royal art merging with the folk life formed a sort of new music, named “E palace tune”.

The tune of E palace tune is as many as 400. All of the characters of opera such as sheng, dan, jing, mo and chou could be seen in E palace tune. The perform follows the stylization of Shaanxi Opera on the whole and absorb some special actions of shadow play. The tune of femal is especially euphemistical and sweet, displaying the happy and wretched vividly.


















The collected traditional plays are as many as 600 with the wide range of subjects and plentiful contents. Most are based on historical materials, disclosing the fatuity, corruption, dissolute of feudal leaders, criticizing the behavior of betraying the nation and commending the national integrity. Some draw material from the real life to reflect the love, morality and labor.
