China Culture Center
Peking Opera has only been in the form we know today for about a hundred and fifty years, but in that time its achieved incredible heights in formalism and mis en scene. In the latter case, we're thinking of those costumes. If you've ever attended a performance though, you may have been alienated by not only language, but the same formalism that makes the medium worth struggling with, as well as a lack of familiarity with the source material. As in western opera, this can be a problem. We humbly suggest China Culture Center's Peking Opera Workshop, which gives you a chance to catch up, and open yourself up to this vibrant Beijing art form.

They are an cultural education organization that has tasked ourselves to share (in English) with others the wonder and diversity of Chinese history and culture.
They are a privately owned and self-sustained organization. They use our innovative travel (CCC Travel) and corporate products to fund our not-for-profit research and cultural education programs.
Most of all, They are a group of English-speaking cultural enthusiasts who want to introduce you to everything about this country, from Confucius to calligraphy, Genghis Khan to green tea, martial arts to feng shui. They are an organization for anyone looking for a way to explore China’s past, present and future.
Since culture is the embodiment of the history and customs of a nation, CCC strives to provide a window into Chinese society.
They were the first cultural organization to specifically cater for foreigners living in Beijing, and since 2000, CCC has become the most trusted travel and learning center, through which expatriates, as well as their visiting families and friends, experience the original China. In addition to a core group of expatriates who frequent our tours, lectures and classes to enrich their knowledge about China, more and more independent travelers and returning visitors are choosing the CCC to help them get under the surface of China.
