Xinjiang dazzling cultural show coming to Malaysia

2007 is Visit Malaysia year and many programs are being planned for the extravaganza. Among them will be a 2 hour dazzling cultural show "Mystical Steppes: Along the silk road", staged by the Xinjiang International Grand Bazaar Theatre on 26-28 January 2007 at the Plenary Hall, Kuala Lumpur Convention Center (KLCC) in Kuala Lumpur. The mystical steppes will be coming to Malaysia. A memorandum of understanding had been signed by the theatre, Star Publications (Malaysia) Berhad and Osim Malaysia Sendirian Berhad, the sponsor. There will be a cast of 60 top-class performers featuring mesmerising dances and songs by the colorful Chinese minorities including the Uyghur, Kazakh, Hui, Mongolian and the Han people. Its racial mix is pretty much like multiracial and multicultural Malaysia.

The 60-members cast comprising world class dancers, technical crew, backstage staff and administrative personnel, will present a kaleidoscope of music and dances from Xinjiang.

Tickets for the show will be RM50 (USD14.08), RM30 (USD8.45) and RM20 (USD5.63) for the morning shows, and RM100 (USD28.16), RM70 (USD19.71) and RM50 (USD14.08) for the afternoon, and evening preformances. Nett proceeds will be donated to two charities - the Alzheimers Disease Foundation of Malaysia and Hospis Malaysia via The Star Foundation.

Tickets are available at Menara Star and all Axcess Ticket counters (further information from Axcess website (close new window/tab to get back to this page). Further information available via telephone 603-7711 5000.

So 2007 will be a good time to visit Malaysia as not only will it be Visit Malaysia year, it will also be the 50th anniversary of its independence as a former colony of Great Britain. Plus you will not only be given a taste of Malaysia, you will get a taste of the mystical steppes too.
