Chinese Opera in Chengdu

In January we attended a Chinese Opera at Shufengyayun Opera House as it was recommended by our hostile.  Additional shout out to Xishu Garden Inn, they are amazing at helping with arrangements.  They booked this and walked us there in addition to helping with my panda experience and also getting to the Jinli Streets.

Anyway, this opera was very interesting and before you ask, photos were encouraged.  Here is a short video with some of the mask changes, fire breathing and table juggling.
