However, it was widely spread in other regions; and later inspired Tan Dun's modern opera "First Emperor". Guests will have the privilege to visit the private studio of the Shaanxi Opera Master. Followed by a lecture, guests will wear the colourful makeup and dress as an opera singer. Practice a few movements with the master and become a Opera Star for a moment!
