Peking Opera Night Show Tour

My daughter married a Chinese man and living in Beijing. This time I visited them for half a month. The son-in-law is a good man. During these days, he drove me to various famous attractions of Beijing, and showed me the most beautiful and interesting places. But I only have strong feelings about the Peking Opera Show.

Peking Opera Show in Liyuan Theater

It is said that the Peking Opera show is also the favorite show for the local Beijing aged. As the essence of Chinese culture, I was also interested in it as a foreigner. My son-in-law booked a related tour for me to enjoy the Peking Opera show in a situated environment. Luckily, the tour guide is very kind to me. Before the show, she introduced me the origin of Peking Opera show firstly, and explained the story about the show would be performed.

In fact, I have little understand about what they were singing, but I liked their facial makeup and costumes very much. It is said that the facial makeup represents different roles as well as the costumes. Most facials reflect the characteristics and temperament of these roles they played. Especially the costumes are all very beautiful with vivid pictures such as dragon, phoenix, etc. And they are cultured in fact. According to the tour guide, the player in ordinary costumes without any pictures plays the ordinary being; in well-quality costumes with animals plays officials and in gorgeous costumes with dragon or phoenix plays ruler or princess. Even the headwear has different distinctions. From above, I found the details of Peking Opera show also have origins. It is really cultural deposits of a big country with long time history.

At the end of this time in Beijing, my daughter sent me some CDs about Peking Opera for me to watch them at home.

Acrobatics Show, Wonderful Night Tour in Beijing

I want to visit every characteristic of Beijing in this time during my first Beijing trip. I heard of the night Beijing is so wonderful and beautiful from my friend had visited Beijing before me. So I decided to make every night in Beijing more interesting. I have wandered in Houhai Bar Street, Sanlitun Bar Street, Blue Harbor, acrobatics show, etc. Every night left me deep impression.

Night Scenery of Houhai

About 6:00pm, the tour guide and driver picked me up and transferred to theater. Because I booked the bus tour, I met several new friends in this car. We even talked about our tour in Beijing and share the experiences. Upon arrived at the theater, we were led to the seats by the tour guide and staff in theater. I was rejoiced that I enjoyed this acrobatics show in Beijing. It was the other essence of China worth to see.

The tour guide told us the acrobatics show performs every night and last about one and a half hour and the Beijing Acrobatic Troupe is one of the best in China on the way. An acrobatic show has become the mostly popular evening entertainment for tourists in Beijing, besides the acrobatic show, still has Chinese Kungfu Show and Peking Opera Show. They are the main entertainments in evening of Beijing. Choosing one of them, you will know about a part of Chinese history and culture.

I was shocked by the soft body and techniques of performers, so that I cannot believe my eyes. I enjoyed the gravity-defying contortionism, Jumping through hoops, Hand feats, chair-stacking, and plate-spinning acts, etc. I wrote these names of skills deliberately, in order to list them on my journey book. The whole process gave me huge surprise in various sides.

Ended of this night show tour, we were sent to our hotels one by one. Besides the performance, I had to say the price and service offered by BeijingLandscapes.com were the most satisfied to me.

Peking Opera Show Experience

If you ask me what I may know about Beijing, I should answer the Peking Roast Duck and Peking Opera. They are the representations of Beijing. Last time to Beijing, I was lucky to taste the Peking Roast Duck, and I do not know how to describe it in words. It is the feeling of missing, miss family, miss friends, even I miss the memory of Peking Roast Duck.

This time to Beijing, I have enjoyed another representation of Beijing – Peking Opera Show. Because of the busy work, I had no free time to book ticket and find the theater. So I spent few minutes on booking a night show tour online. I found it was a good time to book tour online. It could help you save time and money with well-reputed service.
The tour guide picked me up at 6:00pm. Besides me, there were several English speaking friends in the car. After make sure everybody on the car, we were transferred to Beijing Liyuan Theater. On the way to theater, the tour guide told us lots of history and culture about the Peking Opera. In order to let us understand the Peking Opera easily, she also explained the content of this Peking Opera and this theater. This is a theater has strong Chinese style in decorations, furniture, outlook, etc. Crowded with various foreigners and local Beijingers, Liyuan Theater is one of the most popular theaters for performing Peking Opera.

Arrived at Liyuan Theater, we were led to our seats with the help of tour guide and staff in theater. What attracted me in this opera were the costumes and types of the facial makeup. I have never seen these kinds of clothes in other countries, they have strong grade differential in patterns. Person who is the officer wear the clothes with animals. If imperial persons, he or she would wear the clothes painted with dragon or phoenix. An ordinary people wear the ordinary clothes without any paintings. Even though I understand it hardly, I could distinguish the roles in their costumes. It is a good way to understand the story they performed. I recommend this method, this tour and this Beijing China travel agency.

I enjoyed the other characteristic of Beijing, in future, I will visit the attractions of Beijing completely. Beijing is an interesting city always attracts me!
