Beijing opera performance in Liyuan Theatre

0730 Beijing opera performance in Liyuan Theatre

“Farewell My Concubine” is one of many productions presenting classical Beijing opera. Traditional Chinese theatre combines music, performance and symbolic movements. Some roles require colourful facial painting and many layers of lavishly decorated fabric. In Liyuan Theatre you can even watch some performers being dressed up on stage – and this is an art in itself! The plot is easy to follow as the dialogs are projected also in English.
