The opera was very interesting. For VIP, I showed up an hour early to have the costume and makeup done, which was a lot of fun! They offer photo services at an additional fee, and help you pose in traditional dance movements. The opera was a variety hour of different chinese performance acts

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better April 2015

Redeemed the coupons for tickets without too much trouble as I speak Chinese, but I have no idea how others would have known to go to the shopping complex across the street from the park, and then to a desk in the back. As for the show, it was extremely loud too loud! and while the face changing and fire breathing at the very end were fun, there was an awful lot of non-opera felt like a US variety show in the 1940s -- slapstick, bad jokes, overall silliness -- but the audience clearly loved it! Worth every penny if you want to experience today's China..
