According to Xiong Tao, head of the Wuhan Singing and Dancing Institute, when they performed previously in museums, they usually presented a classic repertoire. However, this environmental dance drama was specifically tailored for the museum by them.

In the initial stage, Xiong says, his creation team visited the site at least 10 times, and combined various dance genres in the drama, including contemporary, classical and modern dance, to appeal to a wider audience.

During the Labor Day holiday, the daily reservations for the Panlongcheng National Archaeological Site Park soared beyond 10,000. The premiere of the environmental dance drama drew a total of 300 guests per day.

Due to the enthusiastic response, the museum plans to continue running the show on weekends this month and in June.

A work conference on the development of China's national archaeological site parks was held in Wuhan from April 17 to 19.

The China Academy of Cultural Heritage released the development report for National Archaeological Site Parks (2018-22) during this event. Between 2018 and last year, national archaeological site parks in China had organized more than 4,700 events and received 146 million visits, the report says.
