This is a great chance to listen to traditional Naxi music, as well as learn a bit about it. There are ensemble and solo pieces (that give a better indication of the individual qualities of each musical instrument), and I preferred the latter but it was all very good actually. Guests are given a little booklet on arrival giving lots of information on the particular instruments and general cultural history. For example, lots of the instruments were saved during the Cultural Revolution only by being buried by their owners. The one downside was noise pollution from outside but it wasn't too much of an issue. However, I'm not sure how long this will continue as a nightly performance: even during peak-season when I went, sadly the theatre was maybe 10% full and about half of the group is over 70-years old. So see it while you can!!!
