WHY THIS TOUR?
The Tang Empire of China was a dynasty that ruled from 618 – 907 A.D. and is regarded as a golden age of Chinese arts and culture, reform and advancement. During this time, one of the imperial concubines, Wu Zetian, came to rule as empress – and subsequently became the only woman in more than 3,000 years of Chinese history to rule in her own right.
Wu’s life is not without controversy. Legend says she was manipulative, promiscuous, ruthless and cruel, even murdering members of her own family. Yet during her 40-year reign, China grew larger and more powerful than ever before. Enjoy an unforgettable evening show as you discover more about the life of the mysterious, influential and controversial Empress Wu.
