Sep.22,2017 -- A delegation from the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) paid a visit to Lhasa to view the Princess Wencheng large-scale epic drama and survey its related supporting projects in southwest China's Tibet, Sept. 4.

Taleb Rifai, Secretary-General of the UNWTO, said that the Princess Wencheng was the most unique and amazing epic performance he had ever seen, and he admired the theater site and stage design. He was also impressed by how the tourism and cultural industries are helping local farmers and nomads out of poverty.

The drama tells the story of Princess Wencheng's making-peace marriage to the then Tibetan king Songtsen Gampo, and presents the Han and Tibetan culture, folk customs and natural landscapes to the audience by means of Tibetan dances, Tibetan opera and Buddhist chanting etc.

Among the more than 800 performers, 95% of them are farmers and nomads.
