  • Cally 17 Sep 2018
    The theater was a little run down and there were some technical issues with the translation screens, but all in all a good experience. Tickets were easy to pick up.
  • WAI MING 19 Aug 2018
    Good show. With both chinese and english captions. Comfortable environment. Close to Metro.
  • Jia Wen 5 Jun 2018
    Not worth the value of the ticket price. Too touristy and commercialized.
  • HUI FANG 30 May 2018
    Pekingese Opera Performance shall be a must to visit in Beijing. Redemption of physical tickets was easy and without much hassle. Strategic location too.
  • Chong 5 May 2018
    Interesting . The play was a lot more entertaining than we thought but the play was a bit short and no explanation before the show on history/how/why.
  • Ja 28 Apr 2018
    Show itself was great. It was live Chinese opera mash up with subtitle in English on the screen. Reason I’m giving low rating is because frustration of direction they provided. I went to the show on April 14th 2018. On April 14th when I need the direction, they sent me direction on email saying take Line 4 get off at Cashikou station and walk 20 minutes to Liyuan theatre. Google map doesn’t show Liyuan Theatre. Theatre is at Jianguo Hotel, Qianmen Beijing. I’m pretty good with direction. But they had wrong address on the map and fault direction. Now I see they updated the direction to get off at Hufangqiao station and walk 7 minutes to Jianguo Hotel. That’s improvement. I had to speak to them on the phone for 30 minutes to find direction. Show starts at 7:30pm. I planted to arrive at 7pm so I can see the performers getting ready for the show. Lucky I left hotel early enough. Even it took an hour to find the location. I only missed the make up part which was kinda boring. It was only one guy doing make up on the stage. Arrive 10-15 minutes before the show is fine. But I would still go early only because it’s open seat. You can pick better seat when you get there early.

    It was a very interesting performance even though the voices are very hard to understand.
  • Valerie 19 Jan 2018
    A lady was waiting for me in the lobby with tickets, show was amazing, would recommend to those interested in classical Chinese culture. Would be great if they add the address of the theatre in Chinese characters to show the taxi driver, he looked kinda confused when I showed him the English address.

    Somebody will waited you, by holding a paper with your name, and he will give your ticket, a 3 short stories about 1 hour and if you come early you can see 1 of them make up on a stage, it's value for money and if you like china culture it'll really nice :)
