Liyuan Theatre

Peking Opera in Dashilar & Xicheng South

This touristy theatre in the Qianmen Jianguo Hotel has nightly performances of Peking opera complete with English subtitles. The setting isn’t traditional: it resembles a cinema auditorium (the stage facade is the only authentic touch), but it’s an easy introduction to the art form, and shows only last an hour.
