Liyuan Theater, co-operated by Beijing Qianmen Hotel and Beijing Opera Theater, is the first Art Hall in Beijing. With performance hall set in the theater, the world-renowned Beijing Opera Troupe puts on performances with a strong lineup and large program varieties here every night. The audience can enjoy the performances while tasting snacks and Chinese tea. In the exhibition hall and exhibition hall for sale, the audience can skim through the brief history of the Chinese Beijing Opera and stage photos of famous artists of Beijing opera; pick out and buy stage costumes, facial make-ups, musical instruments, calligraphy and painting and audio and video products. If you are interested, you can put on the stage costume and wear facial make-ups to take a photo. This is the only venue specially provided for overseas tourists to enjoy Beijing opera in the mainland.

Regular opera performances are held for Beijing opera greenhorns at this tourist-oriented theatre in the Qianmen Jianguo Hotel. Have a chummy photo taken or watch make-up application. This hotel extremely popular with tour groups lured by its combination of excellent location and value, this place makes considerable efforts to ward off that great leveller: the generic four-star Chinese hotel feel. Liyuan theatre is at the rear of the lobby.

Peking Opera (Beijing Opera) has a history of over 200 years. Originally, Peking Opera was a form of local theatre, but now it has become the national-opera of China. Like most Chinese local operas, it is truly a comprehensive art combining stylized acting with singing, acrobatics and colorful costumes.

Before Peking Opera, Kunqu Opera was a very popular opera in Beijing, especially in the Imperial Palace and among the upper classes in Beijing. About 200 years ago, Emperor Qianlong, of the Qing Dynasty, toured in southern China and developed an interest in the local operas. One his 80th birthday, he had different local opera troupes come to Beijing to perform for him. After the birthday celebration, four famous troupes from Anhui Province remained in Beijing. Because of its vigorous clear tones, Anhui Opera gradually replaced Kunqu Opera, and also gradually had been very popular in the palace and among the upper classes. Later in 1828, another troupe from Hubei Province came to Beijing. They often performed together with Anhui troupes. The two types of singing blended on the same stage. They naturally learnt from each other, taking in the strong points from others to enrich their own skill and then by integrating the Beijing accent into their singing. Gradually it gave birth to a new opera- Peking Opera, which assimilated the best elements from both operatic forms.
