New Charm of the Ancient Theater
The guild halls in Beijing are unique historical and cultural heritages. Known as the “living fossil of Chinese theaters”, Zhengyici Theater is the first indoor theater with an integral wooden structure in China. In 2019, Zhengyici Theater was officially handed over to the Northern Kunqu Opera Theater for restoration, utilization and operation. Its restoration preserves the original style of the ancient theater. The opera performances on the venue stick to the principle of “creative transformation and innovative development” and the performers explore new ways of expression with new technologies, enabling its audience to better experience the charm of traditional Chinese operas.
