Liyuan Theatre
Liyuan Theatre is situated in the Qianmen Jianguo Hotel in Beijing’s Xuanwu District, south of Tiananmen Square. The area is famous for being the birthplace of Peking Opera, and the Liyuan Theater has been hosting this traditional performing art since 1990.

Popular among tourists as well as Chinese opera lovers, the performances at the Liyuan Theatre offer a classic introduction to Peking Opera, with elements of Beijing culture, kung fu, and even humor featuring prominently. Performers wear theatrical makeup, dramatic masks, and stunning costumes to convey their stories, and spectators should expect thunderously loud music and heart-felt performances from the stage.

The Liyuan Theatre hosts a four-part Peking Opera every evening except Chinese New Year.

Practical Info

To reach the theater by public transport, take Subway Line 7 and alight at Hufangqiao Station. The nightly four-part show begins at 7:30pm.
Address: No.175 Yongan Road, Beijing, Xuanwu District, China
Hours: Daily performance: 7:30-8:40pm

Cool Show! A Must Do when in Beijing
Victor L
, Aug 2019
We were picked up by Mr. Sen from our hotel and we arrived at the theatre 30 minutes before show time. Show was interesting. Colorful. Only thing is that its in Chinese (of course right?!) and there are subtitles on the side. Never seen something like it, worth check it out if you havent either. Thanks!

, May 2016
This experience wasn't quite what I had in mind. The venue caters to tourists - the place was empty with the exception of a few tour groups and you enter through a gift shop. The show itself wasn't something I found interesting, as it was slow moving. We were brought in early, waited, saw an hour-long show, and were brought back to our hotel. The transportation was nice, but I wouldn't repeat the experience.

Liyuan Theatre Peking Opera Tickets

Audiences sit around classical wooden square tables, listening to the opera, tasting local snacks, and sipping Chinese tea. What a comfortable nightlife activity! Don’t be frustrated if you have no knowledge of Chinese, since there are English subtitles on the screen. Before the performance starts, you can see how the performers draw their facial mask and dress up. You can also take a picture with them if you want.
