Peking Opera combines song, dance, acrobatics and spectacular costumes to tell its stories. Roles and performances are highly stylised, with makeup and clothes identifying characters as particular types – the beautiful heroine, the clown, the dignified older man. There's singing, dancing and acrobatics, as well as unique stagecraft and symbolism to present a breath-taking sensory feast.
