The Peking Opera
World Music

"A sumptuous concoction of fabulous costumes, painted faces, lyric poetry, percussive music and jaw-dropping acrobatics..." Los Angeles Times

A graceful singer completes the final notes of a lilting aria, does a handstand and double back flip, then joins the rest of the cast in a spectacular display of tumbling and cartwheels. A night at the opera? Not as we know it. This is "opera" Peking-style, packed with high-speed encounters carried out with split-second timing and precision! Characterized by glorious costumes, stylized acting and incredible makeup and masks, the 47-member Peking Opera offers a dazzling display of music, song, mime, martial arts and stunning acrobatics.
