    Highlights of Sichuan Opera 

    Face-changing show

    It is the most impressive and well known ,a magic show that employs multiple techniques to allow actors to change masks and even entire costumes in the blink of an eye.

    The comedy show « Rolling lights »

    A classic comedy about a lady punishing her husband for returning home drunk. While the jokes might be difficult to understand if you’re not a Chinese speaker, the majority of the humour comes from slapstick and physical comedy, which transcends language barriers.

    The hand shadows show

    It is beautiful and will entertain children and grown up as much as the stick puppets act. Music is also an important part of this show and a few traditional instruments will be played on stage.

    Puppet Show 

    A silent show of a puppet without singers or players. The performer use only his pair of clever hands to control the puppet to make different and sometimes difficult movements resembling a real person playing in a show and trying to tell a story usually about love.
