Beijing Opera in Lisbon

“An example of the exceptional” was how one journalist described the performance of the Beijing Opera in Lisbon. With the Tower of Belém as its backdrop, “and whose monumental austerity”, according to the Expresso newspaper, “for the first time went unnoticed”, the company played to a public “that did not know what most to appreciate: whether the richness and depth of colour of the costumes, the acrobatic agility of the actors, the juggling skills displayed in the handling of staffs, flags, swords and other items, the vocal games, the choreography and dancing or whether the music itself.”
