Shufeng Sichuan Opera House

Along with Pandas and Hotpot, Sichuan Opera is one of the crown jewels of Chengdu’s tourism industry, and rightly so. The performance is colorful, musical, comedic, and highly acrobatic featuring half a dozen separate performances that are sure to impress. The Shufeng Sichuan Opera House (蜀风雅韵) is located on Qintai Traditional Street in the West of Chengdu and is easy to find, with brightly illuminated lights outside of the venue. The performance location includes live instrumentation featuring a host of traditional Chinese instruments and is in an outdoor courtyard setting.

Prices

Ticket prices at the Shufeng Sichuan Opera house start around 150 yuan and go up depending on time of year, performance time, and seat location. During the performance you can pay an additional 30-80 yuan for services like massage and ear cleaning. Seeing as this is probably the best venue for seeing Sichuan Opera in Chengdu (which is considered by many to be a must-see Chengdu attraction), the prices are warranted. You can book or reserve tickets by calling the telephone number listed below.

    This is my favorite Sichuan opera place in Chengdu – great to take guests from out of town to. The place is semi outdoors so it’s best to go between spring and fall. For maximum authenticity get your ears cleaned during the opera!

      Is this something that I could bring a 2 year old or should we leave him at home.

      • Charlie May 5, 2013 at 3:37 pm #

        A two year old should be no problem.

    What language do they speak as dialogue? English?
    Because if they speak in Chinese, i will not understand.

      Hi Christina,

      There is an English language introduction to each of the acts, but the opera portion is in Chinese – specifically, Sichuan dialect. The spoken Chinese part of the entire performance is rather small though, and it’s still highly entertaining even if you can’t understand the dialogue. I don’t think it will detract from the experience much.

    This is a fantastic show – it has a little bit of everything and doesn’t require much translation. The performers are top standard and the different acts showcase skills and abilities that you do not see outside China. It’s not expensive, it’s not too long, and will leave you in delight and awe. Don’t miss this gem!

    It was mentioned that the show is partially outside. How cold does it go, because I will be going in mid-December?

    Thank you.

      Hi Jacqui,

      It doesn’t go that cold, dress warm and I think you’ll be fine. There will still be plenty of people there.

      The best way to book tickets is to contact them directly, that is something we cannot help you with.

    Hi, I am Joan, a spanish tourist that I am going to visit Chengdu in July. I am interested in visiting the Sichuan Opera, specially the Face changing show. I think this is the theatre, but I can’t find the information about it.
    Can you explain the differents parts of the play? What kind of performances can I find?

    Thanks in advanced.

      Hi,

      Look up Sichuan opera online to learn more about what it includes.

  7. Alan January 22, 2016 at 10:12 am #

    I know about zero Chinese but enjoyed the show. Ticket prices include tea and the staff are good at refilling your cup. Be on the lookout for the teapot with the long spout. Dress warmly and bring a hat in winter.

    • Charlie January 23, 2016 at 8:35 am #

      Great to hear, Alan. It is a good place to visit and experience Chengdu culture.
