[Photos] Beijing Opera at Beijing Laoshe Tea House
I had the opportunity to watch a tea ceremony, Beijing Opera, magic show, hand shadow show, and Chinese acrobatics in one location: Beijing Laoshe Teahouse. It was great for any foreigner who can’t fully understand Chinese and to enjoy bits of Chinese culture in one evening. Located near Qianmen Subway Station on Line 2, I would recommend it to anyone who is in Beijing for a short trip but would like to experience everything listed above. The setting is extremely casual too. They serve you different kinds of tea based on the season of the program and enjoy the show munching on traditional Beijing tea snacks. Here are some photos I managed to take of the Beijing Opera part of the night.
