It is held in a tea house with comfortable seats and a table. The performances are varied and a delight, showing aspects of local tradition and culture. The face changing performance is outstanding. A very pleasant evening out.

Was interested to see the face changing acts which were fantastic. The shadow puppet work was also very good as was the female juggler. All in all a good night out.

We bought the mid range tickets, our seats were right in front of the main aisle that lead to the dressing room area, they were great seats, we had no problem seeing everything. We were not super close to the stage, but not so far...More

The music, dancing, comedy, puppets, and hand shadow shows were wonderful and very well presented. I went alone but wished I had my grandsons with me to enjoy all these many aspects of Chinese opera. Don't bother with the VIP tickets, though they are near...More
