Like most tourists, we came to Chengdu primarily to see the Pandas, but our local guide mentioned the possibility of taking in an evening performance of Sichuan Opera. We had already had what we thought was a similar cultural experience in Xi'an and a Kung Fu show in Beijing, so weren't over-enthusiastic, but decided to give it a go. We... More

First, I booked a "VIP ticket" on viator that was, at best, misleading, Every level ticket was described by row number, so "front center" section meant front row center seats to me--Wrong. I was 4 rows back behind lots of raised cell phones and cameras. the neck massage was clearly stated as "at your seat" but that is complexly untrue--you... More

This was a very cool part of our trip. You can go into the makeup room before the show starts and see them putting on their faces for the show. Apparently you can also dress up in the costumes and make up if you get there early enough. During the summer, they will bring hand fans and bug spray around... More

This is an hour and quarter show presenting various acts of traditional Sichuan Opera, which combines singing, dancing and acrobatics. The early acts feature several dances, comedy, a "rolling lamp skit", shadow puppetry, stick puppets, presented with lots of lighting effects (sometimes too much) and a combination of live and recorded music. The highlight occurs at the end with the... More

First of all the show was magnificent. We booked very early and were given free upgrade to excellent seats. The ticket came with 1 snack per person which was really nice. After the show, I stayed back for a makeover session. I tried on 2 costumes and had many pictures taken by the professional photographer. If you would like to... More

this Sichuan opera has all the attraction for us to learn more about the different art presentation by such talented people. There was so much packed into the 90 minutes show. The music, costumes and colours of this show is something anyone of any age will enjoy A must if you visit Chengdu.

The Shu Feng Ya Yun Sichuan Opera is a spellbinding mix of the old and the new. Wonderful traditional Sichuan Opera costumes, stories, mask changing, fire breathing and puppetry are mixed with top-notch laser and multimedia effects. This show is not to be missed!!

My wife and I really enjoyed this lively, upbeat show. It had everything, dancing, opera, they're, puppetry. The costume and face changing was really good. We booked through our hotel Wenjun Mansion and had the 2nd best level of seats, and really you could have booked anywhere, cheaper seats and it would be good - the area is not that... More

This was a very interesting evening, full of surprices. We thought we were going to an opera performance, but it was much more than that; acrobatics, opera, puppet theatre, shadow theathre, chinese violin, some kind of flute, comedy acting and finally the changing faces. Our children age 13 and 18 also loved the 1,5 hour long performance.
