For the first time in 10 years the UK will be able to enjoy the opportunity to watch the China National Peking Opera Company. Both Sadler’s Wells in London and the Liverpool Echo Arena will be presenting the company between 13 November and 22 November 2015.

They’ll be performing two separate programmes – the spectacularly titled Warrior Women of Yang and the European premiere of the equally intriguing sounding Farewell my Concubine.

You can guarantee plenty of colour and exuberance with Chinese opera and it’s bound to be an unforgettable experience. Just don’t expect it to be anything like Western opera.

China National Peking Opera Company are in Liverpool from 13-15 November (try the Liverpool Echo Arena website for tickets and more info) and Sadler’s Wells from 19- 22 November 2015 (Sadler’s Wells website)
