Lao She Teahouse

Performing Arts in Dashilar & Xicheng South

Lao She Teahouse, named after the celebrated writer, has daily and nightly shows, mostly in Chinese, which blend any number of traditional Chinese performing arts. The evening performances of Peking opera, folk art and music, acrobatics and magic (7.50pm to 9.20pm) are the most popular. But there are also tea ceremonies, frequent folk-music performances and daily shadow-puppet shows.

Prices depend on the type of show and your seat. Phone ahead or check the schedule online. Look for two stone lions guarding the front of the building.
