To mark the 400th anniversary of the deaths of Tang Xianzu and William Shakespeare, a thematic exhibition opened in China Cultural Center in Brussels on Thursday night.

With the title of "Dialogue Across Time and Space -- Homage to Tang Xianzu and William Shakespeare," the exhibition takes the Tang-Shakespeare conversation as an entry point.

It narrates the life story of Tang and his classics through sections of "The Era and the Legend", "Fantasy and Reality" and "Me@Tang", which lead visitors to a clash and integration of oriental and western cultures.

Virtual Reality (VR) technology has also been used to create an immerse sense of ancient Chinese culture. A lot of visitors itched for a try.

"You know what?! I dreamed to be in China again just now," Dominique Barea, a local resident who has been in Shanghai once, said excitedly: "There is old wooden architecture, delicate decorations, gentle and quiet Kun Qu...It's just cosy!"

Yan Zhenquan, director of the China Cultural Center in Brussels, hosted the opening ceremony of the exhibition. Claire Chantrenne, musicologist and curator of the Asian Collections at the Museum of Music Instruments in Brussels also participated into the ceremony.

This year marks the 400th anniversary of the deaths of Tang Xianzu and William Shakespeare. The exhibition is scheduled to last till October 15.
