The three wonders of Sichuan Opera: Changing Faces, Blowing Fire and Rolling Lights. This is an amazingly great show. I especially like the rapid changing of faces/masks in a split second.

This is a must-do in Sichuan! It immerses into Chinese culture and is very different from anything one can see in Europe. Be open-minded and enjoy the art. The acts were very entertaining! Definitely one of the highlights for me, having now stayed in China...More

We came here for the face changing show and it really was an incredible show. Tricks, acrobatics, dancing, it was all there. Highlights were the juggling table and the face changing. This show has a really good reputation in a lovely atmospheric theatre.

Great introduction to the Classical Chinese arts. A review of all the different types of theatrical arts - opera, shadow-puppetry, puppets, face changing. Very enjoyable. Pay a little extra and get the tea service.

The finale of the cultural show was the amazingly unbelievable lightning speed the performers changed their colourful face-masks. It’s become an art form. Thoroughly mesmerized by that. The comic act was a hilarious reliever. The er-hoo instrumental, to us lay people, seemed of a high...More

This was one of the highlights. The face changing shoe was superb. Endless tea and peephole doing ear massages ad body ones too. Good family entertainment.

We almost didn't come to see the show, as mum wasn't sure what to expect and it was a hot evening, but we're glad we did. We got a brief taste of many of the Chinese theatrical arts, including hand shadow puppetry, the 'rolling light'...More
