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

As a new expat to TaiPei I was surprised that I seemed to be the only expat who was aware of it's existence! Nonetheless my roommate and I went to the Saturday night performance mostly unsure of what to expect. It was wildly entertaining! As expats living in Asia we've seen our fair share of Chinese lion dances. This one... More

Oftentimes you've seen one of these shows, then you've seen them all, but this show still had some surprises. There were many amazing acrobatic feats, and the Beijing opera after intermission was not at all earsplitting, but instead very enjoyable and easy to follow. The story was fun, the costumes were well done, and it was a great time.
