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!
