Traditional Peking Opera - Liyuan Theater

Make a booking / contact us

Phone: (+8610) 8532-1860 (Monday to Friday, 10am to 6pm)

Tell us the number of tickets, the price of the section you prefer, payment method, showtime, show date and your mobile if you have one. We can then email you back a confirmation.

How it works

You meet our staff at the Liyuan Theater ticket office 15 minutes before the show to receive your tickets and be shown to your seats. While we can arrange a car and driver to pick you up and drop you off, its much more expensive than you simply getting there by taxi. Use our printable taxi map with the address in Chinese to get to the Liyuan Theatre.

Show times

Every evening at 7:30pm (the show lasts 1 hour).
