    I've been several times to the show in the theatre in the Culture Park just off Qingtai Lu and always really enjoy it. You can watch the performers getting made up before the show and the guy who does the hand puppetry is really very good, and of course the face changing is great fun.

    What is the cost of a ticket, and can you buy it at the door? Sounds fabulous.

    I went to the new show (Legend) at the theatre behind Wan Fu Jing Mall. Very good. A modern version of Sichuan Opera.

    Could you explain what you mean by modern version?

    Please don't tell me they also use techno music like in wuhouzi and other places.

    They do have some lasers, but they have included some extra's like acrobatics. Its much better than the Shaolin Story in Beijing.
