Peking Opera has a history of only about 200 years.It is a form of Chinese opera which combines music, vocal performance, mime, dance, and acrobatics.Basically, Peking Opera never has been an exclusive art form, from the beginning it was enjoyed both by the imperial court and the common people, so a wide range of audiences from all social classes was generated. Initially, exclusively male performers were allowed to participate in a play. Only from the 1870ies on, women made appearances on the stage. Even though, male performers continued to be highly popular in Dan roles.
In recent years, Peking opera has attempted numerous reforms in response to sagging audience numbers. These reforms, which include improving performance quality, adapting new performance elements, and performing new and original plays, have met with mixed success.
Liyuan Theatre is the most prestigious performance venue of Beijing Opera. From the traditional performance stage, the Baixian Table (old fashioned square table to seat eight people) to the unique facial make-up, everything in the theater reflects the special feature of old Beijing.
