This touristy theatre, in the lobby of the Qiánmén Jiànguó Hotel , has daily performances for Peking opera newbies. If you want to, you can enjoy an overpriced tea ceremony while watching. The setting isn’t traditional: it resembles a cinema auditorium (the stage facade is the only authentic touch), but it’s a gentle introduction to the art form.
