Taipei Eye, Taipei’s most popular stage show among visitors, takes traditional Chinese opera and distills it down to make it more palatable for a foreign audience. While some Chinese opera performances go on for an entire day, a visit to Taipei Eye takes only an evening, and an evening well spent for anyone interested in the Chinese performing arts.

While Taipei Eye didn’t stage its first performance until 2002, its history dates back to the early 1900s and the opening of the Taiwan Novel Hall as a place to revive Chinese arts during a time in history when the culture of the occupying Japanese had become the norm. The original hall was destroyed during World War II, but the son of the man who built it carried on the legacy by again reviving the art of Chinese opera in Taiwan.

While Taipei Eye performances vary, they typically include aboriginal dancing, acrobatics and folk opera. Be sure to come early to watch the performers apply their makeup and don their colorful costumes.
