Located on Jianguomennei Avenue, the famous Chang An Grand Theatre combines the classical styles of the Ming and Qing Dynasties with modern architectural art. The theatre, which can hold up to 800 spectators, is furnished with elegant mahogany tables, deluxe VIP seats, and comfortable and soft chairs. Classical repertoire is the top priority of the theatre. Its multi-functional stage, advanced sound system and lighting facilities enable the theatre to give various artistic performances.

 

In most evenings, you can enjoy classical Beijing opera programs here at 7:30 pm. Generally, ticket prices range from RMB 50 to RMB 800. Catering to foreign tourists, the theatre often presents some adapted performances that help them know more about Beijing operas, such as various costumes and make-ups.
