Princess' legacy is a feast of culture

Aug. 28, 2017 -- Modern, creative interpretations of ancient art forms are helping revive and protect local traditions through commercialization, Zhao Shijun reports.

When Princess Wencheng of the Tang Dynasty (618-907) royal family married Songtsen Gampo (617-650), king of Tibet, her contemporaries foresaw a better life for her, featuring harmony and unity between the Tibetan and Han ethnic groups.

Thirteen centuries later, Princess Wencheng's legacy is still bringing economic benefits to the people of the Tibet autonomous region.

The Princess Wencheng stage show, which recounts the story of Wencheng's trip to Tibet and her marriage and life with Songtsen Gampo, debuted in Lhasa, capital of the Tibet autonomous region, four years ago.

The show has nurtured a new cultural brand for Tibet and brought a new source of revenue for the locals, attracting large audiences.

Princess Wencheng is one of the best examples of the successful protection, inheritance and rational exploitation of the ethnic culture, local cultural officials say.

Tibet is one of the key regions for the protection of China's ethnic cultures.

Local authorities said that innovative inheritance is the most effective way of protecting traditional cultures.
