We went to see Pekin Opera, but it happened that talented famous Chinese choreographer Gao Yanjinzi represented her dance play 'Blooming of Time'. The way she feels nature, the feeling you experience while watching a dance makes you live through the performance together with these...More

I booked the most expensive tickets in order to enjoy tea and snacks as promised and to watch excerpts of five classics. There was no tea or snacks and only one classic, which was none of the ones published in the programme.

I am an opera buff in the UK, but as others have said, this is far from western opera. We saw a selection of four scenes from Chinese opera, booking direct online. If you do this, you will need cash to collect your tickets (I...More

Whilst I love music, dance and the arts, I tend not to enjoy shrill opera voices breaking glasses! The costuming was amazing and enjoyed watching the actor prepare his makeup on stage prior to the performance. Did appreciate the English subtitles so that I had...More

This was very interesting to see. Arriving early, there is an actor on stage doing his make up and dressing. An interesting look into tradition. There were three mini operas. There was a story board in English which flashed by too quickly to read our...More

I was impressed with the beautiful costumes and delightful actors. The only comment is the English subtitles were too fast to read We really enjoyed the humor and excellent story telling in all 3 acts

if you paste the name of the theatre into a search engine, the website is the first hit and you book through email. Take cash to pay on the night.
