Experience a unique part of Chinese culture with tickets to see an original Peking Opera in Beijing. Peking Opera is a form of Chinese opera that combines music, vocal performance, mime, dance and acrobatics. It arose in the late 18th century and gained recognition in the West thanks to the award-winning 1993 movie "Farewell My Concubine". The performers wear elaborate, colourful costumes, and use speech, song, dance and combat in movements that are symbolic and suggestive, rather than realistic.

The Liyuan Theater has performed traditional Peking Opera since 1990 and it’s one of the leading opera venues in China. Located inside a hotel in Beijing, this theatre offers a wonderful 70-minute-long performance with a plot that can be followed with the help of English subtitles on lateral screens. The opera starts at 19:30 and finishes at 20:40 every day. If you arrive early, you will have the chance to see the performers getting their make-up ready in the dressing room.

If you wish, choose the option of private pickup and drop-off from your hotel, so you won’t have to worry about anything except enjoying an unforgettable show. If you prefer to arrive on your own, the address is: Qianmen Jianguo Hotel near Hufangqiao Subway Station exit C, 175 Yongan Road, Xicheng District, Beijing. In Chinese it is 前门建国饭店. 北京市西城区永安路175号. When you arrive at the theatre, go to the ticket office to show your voucher and receive your real tickets.
