This was a beautiful cultural experience. It involved a number of acts that included: orchestra, shadow puppets, hand held puppets, comedy routine, dancing, and soloists. The best part was the last act with the magically changing costumes and faces. It was very clever.

Didn't understand a word but didn't need to either. Totally worth the experience. Buy the VIP tickets and get a massage and/or an ear cleaning. Yup you read that right. We opted for the massage but passed on the ear cleaning. A weird custom here....More

Certainly it delineates a sense of at the performing arts centre or a stadium where authentic opera were performed! There are exhibitions of La Traviatta, Madame Butterfly, and so forth! It was amazing! The illuminated stages also created a great sense of love from the...More

Its a small theater, adjoining a tea house. We were served tea in the teahouse (cafeteria setting) , then seated to watch an amazing spectacle. Extremely colorful characters, wearing outrageous costumes and telling different stories or performing a variety of acrobatic acts. The story lines...More
