  Much more spectacle on stage.....

After visiting the Beijing Opera we were a little sceptical about another opera. The Beijing Opera was just not our style, the singing (sometimes talking) sounded like a screaming cat. And there was not much action on stage. But we were convinced by our tourleader, this was something completely different, much more show.
She was right ! There were a few dull moments and the combination of acrobatics, changing faces, spitting fire and stick-puppets with the opera was super. The performance was only one hour or so, but it was just good.
We visited the Sichuan Opera in the Shufengyayun Operatic Circle in the Chengdu Culture Park.
