Our tour guide explained that the opera is a Chinese tradition with people going to the show as social event as food is served while one sits at tables and have conversations before the show and during the intermission. It was disappointing that there were...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
