Opera entertainment in Běijīng
- Sort by:
Originally an ancient temple, this ornately decorated building is the oldest wooden theatre in the country and the best place in the city to experience Beijing opera and other operatic disciplines like Kunqu. Restored by a private businessman with an interest in reviving this dying art, the theatre reopened in 1995 after a long period of disrepair.
Performances of Beijing opera are held in the Qing-dynasty Grand Opera House in the east of the grounds of Prince Gong's Residence.
