Dai Opera, a national intangible cultural heritage in Dehong, shown in Mangshi


  Dai Opera, a national intangible cultural heritage in Dehong, was shown from November 15 to 16 in Mangshi. It was sponsored by Dehong Administration of Culture, Sports, Radio and Televison and undertaken by Dehong Culture Center (Dehong Intangible Cultural Heritage Protection Center). Folk Dai Opera teams from 15 training centers performed classic shows.

  Tunes featuring ethnic groups, vivid expressions, colorful costumes and beautiful lamplight on the stage brought out brilliant performance. The show won much cheer and applause from audience who were immersed in Dai stories and the charm of Dai Opera.

  The successful performance had not only promoted Dai Opera but also bridged the gap between Dai Opera and ordinary people. At the same time, the activity built a platform for Dai Opera lovers, further promoting the prosperity of Dai Opera culture.

  It is said that Dehong has set up fifteen Dai Opera training centers. Since July 2017, Dehong has carried out training activities, sending out nine teachers to the fifteen training centers in five counties in Dehong. More than one thousand people benefited from the training.
