Cultural event a hit with foreigners
The Beijing cultural event series for foreigners, Beijing Salon — Experiencing Beijing Culture, held its seventh event, and drew hundreds of foreigners to Beijing Chaoyang Peking Opera Culture Center on Aug 24. Hundreds of foreigners learned the history of Peking Opera from Master Wang Yuzhen during the event and enjoyed classic Peking Opera performed by staff from the institute. They also experienced the special make-up used in the opera. The cultural event series is organized regularly by Beijing This Month, a publication which focuses on providing lifestyle and cultural information to expats living in Beijing.
