Entertainment in Lanzhou

Shows and Performances

Lanzhou is one of the better places, outside of Beijing itself to view traditional Chinese opera. The opera performed over the city includes the most famous Beijing Opera (Jing ju), Shaanxi Opera (Qin qiang), Henan Opera (Yu ju), and the local Gansu Opera (Long ju). Currently the city has 16 troupes giving regular performances, the best one of which is the Lanzhou Shaanxi Opera Troupe (Lanzhoushi Qing qinag tuan). To find out information on the whereabouts and times of these performances the best bet for non-Chinese speakers is to ask in the upper end hotels.
