This was a fascinating experience. Only six of our group went but it was packed throughout. We saw three short pieces. The costumes and masks were marvellous and the movement of the dancers as if they were on wheels. Well wortha visit.

I didn't go to an opera on past. I assume that opera is not that we see on peking opera. But for an experience is good.

I have been to the Peking Opera twice and it gets no better - but that's its charm. It is traditional singing which plays badly to European/US ears. Put that aside and watch the performance for what it is and then you realise it ain't...More

Unlike any opera you have known. Don't go for the music it will hurt your ears. But go for the costumes and makeup and the experience. It's a dying art and you may not have the chance again

I really feel bad giving this such a low score, however it is only the honest opinion of myself and the other 11 members of my tour group. When we arrived in Beijing after a long day of travelling, the first place we were ushered...More

With absolutely no offense to cultural sensitivities, you need to go in for this prepared, particularly if you are not attuned to Chinese opera. While visually it is rich, the high squeaking, largely incomprehensible exchanges and the long drawn out 'drama' can get to you....More
