The show is only one hour and they advise everyone to go a half hour early. We were glad we listened and showed up a half hour before the start of the show as the seats are not assigned and you must take an elevator to the third floor first where the stage is located and quickly claim your seats...

I visited the place on 27 April,the show was Monkey god vs Spider Goblin. The place is in a commercial building in itself but it isn't too hard to find. Just lookout for the Cement hall building which is adjacent to the postal building. The show starts at 8pm and ends at 9 pm. There are displays of costumes and... More

This show was a revelation - like a wonderful combination of martial arts and theatre, it is one of the best things I could imagine doing in Taipei and really unmissable. Loved every second of it and would have gone straight away again if I could! Souvenirs outside are reasonably priced and your hotel can probably provide you with a... More

Really enjoyed the show, we saw "Bottomless Pit" performed by the Taipei Li-Yuan Peking Opera Theatre. The show is in Chinese but there are screens either side of the stage with translations, English included. After the performance you can have pictures with the actors, which is great because the costumes are amazing! Highly recommend it!

Book first before you visit the venue. When I visited the show, I couldn't see a free seat around, so this show is quite popular among tourist. They provide 15% discount if you are student, or using certain credit card (citibank in my case). You might want to get here earlier, I manage to get the center area right beside... More

This was a must for me visiting Taipei. I really enjoyed the interaction with the customers before the show. You can see some ofthe cast applying their makeup. Another is playing music. And photo opportunity for free. They also had some souvenir available. The overall show was fantastic. The show had everything from comedy to martial arts display, dancing. I... More

The content of the shows changes - during our visit it was "The Joys of Peking Opera" which gave us a good introduction (watered down a little bit to accommodate Western tastes) of Chinese opera, although it did include that high pitched squeaky singing!. We bought the tickets in the afternoon and arrived a little early at 8.10pm to choose... More
