  Mei Lanfang Residence
by socrates_07

I am not sure if this place is interesting for you and maybe not a "must see activity" if you are just few days in Beijing. Even I didn't visited this place when I was the first two times in Beijing.

But who is Mei Lanfang? Well, he is the most popular Beijing Opera singer and he even had some performances in Europe, USA and Japan. With his voice, movements, style,.. he played female roles perfectly.
I don't understand Beijing Opera but when I visited such a performance I was very impressed. So, at least for me, it was a 'must see activity' to visit the Residence of Mr. Mei Lanfang. ( 1894 - 1961)
