Entertainment in Beijing

Beijing is a city of theaters, teahouses, cinemas, ballrooms, gyms, swimming pools and golf courses. Take your pick.

Peking Opera
The 200-year old Peking Opera is a true reflection of Chinese culture. Each performance brings together several traditional skills: singing, dancing, acrobatics and martial arts. Not to be missed.

Acrobatics are an art form in China, a tradition that goes back 2,000 years. Classic performances such as ‘walking-on-wire’, ‘head feats’, ‘ancient magic’ and ‘conjuring’, among other tests of body and mind, hold audiences spellbound.

No visit to Beijing is complete without a visit to a teahouse. At the Laoshe Teahouse, for instance, an opera performance unfolds over cups of famous Chinese tea. At the Tianqiao Teahouse, folk dances and songs add their distinct flavor to the brew. In recent years, teahouses have included the tea ceremony to their menu.
