Tibetan troupe to showcase culture through music and dance
**********************************************************

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the Tibet Autonomous Region, the Tibet Autonomous Region Song and Dance Troupe will perform their new production, "Mysterious Tibet", in Hong Kong next month.

The show will unveil the history, geography, religion and customs of Tibet through traditional dances, costumes, instruments and music. It will take place at 8pm on July 20 and 21 (Wednesday and Thursday) at the Auditorium of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre.

The Tibet Autonomous Region Song and Dance Troupe, a 180-strong company founded in 1958, comprises Han, Hui, Zhuang, Loba, Menba and Naxi people with the majority being Tibetan. It has performed in the Tibet Autonomous Region and other provinces of the Mainland, as well as many foreign countries including the former Soviet Union, the US and Germany. In 2001, the troupe performed the epic "Qomolangma" in Hong Kong, winning critical acclaim for its unique style. In "Mysterious Tibet", the troupe includes National Class One Performers and other talented Tibetan dancers, singers and musicians.

"Mysterious Tibet" is presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department. It is one of the activities of the "Pearl of Snow Plateau - China Tibetan Culture Week".
