Tibetan opera, medicine well preserved with intensified protection efforts

Everyone who has been to Tibet will be fascinated by the magic power of the unique Tibetan culture. Even if many of us have never been there, we will still be thrilled on other occasions.

For example, the Tibetan Opera shown on the CCTV Spring Festival Gala in 2007 by local artists from Lhazê County of Shigatse impressed the audience throughout the country with its brilliance drawn from the profound Tibetan cultural heritage.

Since the reform and opening-up policy was initiated, the awareness of protecting ethnicTibetan  heritage has been increased. Rescue teams for ethnic Tibetan culture were successively established in various regions in Tibet.

Doubtlessly, these efforts have yielded good results with large quantity of folk oral literature, tales, poetry, ballads as well as performing arts collected, studied and published.

In recent years, China's central government and Tibet regional government allocated more than 10 million yuan to the survey, study and protection of Tibetan Opera. This ancient art form has resumed its vitality, especially after being added onto the United Nation's human intangible cultural heritage list in 2009.

Lhasang Tsering, director of the Tibetan Opera Troupe of Nyangri apparently cherishes hope towards the future of Tibetan opera, "We can perform 5 of the 8 traditional Tibetan Operas, and we look forward to showing them all as early as possible."
