Dating back to the late 18th-century, Peking Opera's tradition of elaborately-costumed performers on a sparse stage is a cultural staple in China. Enjoy an easy night out with this excursion. Instead of navigating Beijing's complex subway system, enjoy air-conditioned transfers to the theater, pick up your pre-booked tickets and relax.
With return transfers, focus on the show instead of thinking about getting back to your hotel
Stay sharp for the entire show, with tea, bottled water and snacks included
If it suits your schedule, start this tour early to see the performers apply their makeup
See a traditional show, with authentic staging and Baixian tables that seat eight people
Our driver was exactly on time for pick-up at our hotel. There were no other passenger pick-ups and we were able to get to the theater early for the actor make-up/dress-up. The driver got our seats and asked the attendants for good seats. To our surprise, we sat in the front, center table where we could see all the action close up like a personal performance. The musicians were excellent and the Chinese Opera was as my Chinese grandmother had seen in her younger days. Chinese snacks were provided and English translation was shown on the screens to the left and right of the stage. Our driver had waited in the parking lot and was there for us after the performance. He gave us a driving tour through Peking at night on the way to our hotel. Excellent transportation service, best seats in the house, moving Peking Opera....it was a definite highlight of our one-in-a-lifetime trip to China. Thank you!!
