    "When most people think about Chinese opera, they think about the Peking Opera. That’s not a surprise; it’s the most famous and well-known kind. To catch a Peking Opera performance on the same Royal stage that emperors did, just hop Beijing subway line 4 out to the Summer Palace.

    The Summer Palace itself reminds me of a stage set. In Qing Dynasty times, a court visitor would first stand before the magnificent entrance gate. From there he, or she, would look up at the towering halls and temples on Longevity Hill’s steep slope. If you want to feel small, stand on that spot..."
