- Chinese Opera includes more than 300 theatrical forms, among which Beijing Opera is usually regarded as the crème de la crème. In many ways it is similar to ancient Greek theater with its combination of singing, dialogue, acrobatics and pantomime. The actors wear masks, and the performances are accompanied by loud and monotonous rhythms produced by percussion instruments. Local professional Beijing Opera singers give a variety of performances with well-balanced casts and a large repertoire. Admission: CNY30-CNY150.
