Never been an opera buff but as it was on our agenda and was already pre booked so we gave it a go. The stage was huge and only a handful of actors / dancers / singers involved but the highly pitched singing was not to my taste although we struggled with the storyline we appreciated the work put into the performances, especially the dancing.
Our show lasted around an hour and a half and we were pleased to have attended another part of Chinese culture.

It was a real sleeper to discover how wonderful Chinese Opera really is and this is the best of the best. Wonderful stories depicted in such a dramatic fashion.

Wasn't here for very long. Enjoyed what we saw. Wouldn't want to be here for more than around an hour.

We were very interested to experience traditional Peking opera and are glad we had the opportunity to. The Huguang Guild Hall has a 200-year history and is worth visiting. It is interesting to see that dancing and acting is given as much emphasis as singing, much different from Western opera. The costumes and makeup were amazingly detailed. It was also interesting to hear the sounds of traditional Chinese instruments.

Seriously thought this would be bad, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was really interesting, and they did it so that non-English speakers can understand what's going on. The theater itself was interesting also. If you want to get into the local culture, this is a great way to go. My young teenagers only sort of liked it though (but that was expected).
