While in Taipei I wanted to know about Taipei culture so I decided to visit TaipeiEYE. I booked its ticket in advance but I found it that one need not book in advance as it available on the spot also. Its a one hour show. The quality was good but nothing great or extraordinary. I have seen much better performances... More

As a Westerner, there's no denying that this comes across as a bit bizarre. The singing, which is generally limited to the first 15 minutes or so, is more of a high pitched wailing (there are subtitles). After that, it became more of an acrobatic show, which was very impressive, even if I struggled to follow what was meant to... More

The family which operates this theater clearly cares about quality cultural entertainment, their community, and the country of Taiwan. The show, which changes periodically, is entertaining and fun. It is not simply Chinese opera. The experience is a multi-dimensional performance of poignant acting and story-telling, beautiful costumes and make-up, dynamic acrobatics, sword-fighting, and live music performed by an orchestra!

TaipeiEYE is a delightful experience. It is inexpensive, entertaining, and a lot of fun! Make time to go and see this--regardless of which opera is being performed. Lasts about an hour...you won't regret it!

When my wife suggested going to this show I was a little doubtful. Peking Opera is not my thing. However the performance was not Chinese opera at all. It was famous story known by most Chinese and was mainly acting and acrobatics. Singing was to the minimum. The performers were brilliant gymnasts and the fight scenes were so skilful. I... More

Although just mentioned on the last page of a traveller information, we decided to go to the theater TaipeiEye and we enjoyed it! The location is easily found by MRT - ask for the Cement Hall! We were welcomed with a cup of tea, had a good place in the auditory and enjoyed the story of the Monkey Business in... More

This show was a basic acrobatic show. There was some singing; but not operatic, and just of an average standard. It was simple. Simple backdrops, basic acrobatic dance moves, basic acting, basic singing. There was a live instrumental ensemble. Four or five instrumentalist.

Four years ago I went to see Beijing Opera in Beijing and swore never to go again. Fortunately I decided to give it another go and we chose to visit TaipeiEYE. Beijing opera is very different to anything else I have seen. To compare it to any western tastes is an act of futility. It should be appreciated as a... More

Many of the previous reviewers have gone to this show not knowing quite what to expect. Traditionally, Beijing opera has always been performed on a small nearly bare stage with a live orchestra and a minimum of backdrops or props. So aside from the modern lighting and sound system, and being unable to enjoy tea and snacks while you watch,... More
