This is an old-fashioned Chinese show, but it moves along quickly and was entertaining. Worth seeing once while you are in China.

This show was so much fun and so amazing. The opera was secondary to the fire breathing, acrobatics and mask changing. The crowd was mostly Chinese and they loved it. Highly recommend it.

The "opera" has some singing but is mostly stylized dancing and acrobatics. There are fire features but the highlight is the face changing masks.
