Beijing Opera Cultural Make Up Experience

Beijing Opera (or Peking Opera) “京劇” is a traditional Chinese theatre that combines music, vocal performance, mime dance and acrobatics. It is the national embodiment of China and the jewel of the national art with a history of over 200 hundred years. It arose in the late 18th century and became recognized by the mid-19th century. The performances are visually stunning with a distinct music style. Normally, the storylines are based on Chinese history or literature. On this cultural trip, you will get a chance to try on the famous Beijing Opera face painting in character of a Beijing Opera actor/actress!

Beijing Opera Make Up Exeprience

Origin of Facial Makeup

The origin of facial makeup used in Beijing Opera can be traced back to more than 1,400 years ago, when leading actors used to wear masks. As the operatic arts developed, performers gradually took off their masks and painted colorful patterns on their faces. This way, people could better see their facial expressions.

There are four general styles of face painting that represent four essential types of characters in a typical Beijing Opera: male, female, a "painted face," and a clown. Originally, only three colors were used: red, white, and black. Later, other colors were gradually incorporated, such as purple, yellow, blue, green, gold and silver. Each with its own symbolic meaning.

Take a moment to visit this company's website, the transformations you see there really do happen. Ms. Shirley changed a hot sweat spherical tourist into a regal queen. I even got a chance to practice some Mandarin while I was there. Honestly, work this tour into your schedule. It is well worth it.

Beijing Opera Cultural Make Up Experience

“This makeup session was an eye-opening experience that would definitely be the highlight of their trip!”

Stacey, the mother of the girls, happily proclaimed that although the girls had previously shown interest in Beijing Opera, this makeup session was an eye-opening experience that would definitely be the highlight of their trip. Watching the girls merrily pose for photos that would surely become memorable for a lifetime, one couldn’t help but think that this fascinating experience could perhaps cultivate a budding interest for the performing arts.

This is the first time I've booked the tour with Topology, the experience with them was fantastic! Penny who has communicated with me from beginning to the end, she is very responsive with all the questions I had or requested, and well informed about tour guide's info and pickup time. Fun time seems to pass by quickly, Spencer surely made our trip so memorable, we will always remember him and hopefully one day we will meet up again. =)

We were a family of 13 that did 2 private day tours and airport transfers with Topology. Peter was excellent with all communications from the beginning. Airy was a wonderful bilingual guide thar really made us feel at home. The kids in our group also warmed up to her quickly. The included lunches were sumptuous and extensive. They are a little pricey but well worth every penny.

We had an amazing time in Taiwan! Allen from Topology was responsive throughout the planning stages. We have a child with many food allergies and requested an English-speaking guide to accompany us for the entire trip. We could not have been happier with Spencer! We spent 7 days with him touring Taipei, Jiufen, Yehliu National Park, Kaoshiung, and Kenting National Park. He kept that pace quick for the kids and most of our free time was spent exploring different markets sampling street food. Spencer kept my son safe during the entire trip, and by the end he was like a part of the family.

8 day private tour of Taiwan

Our 8 day private tour of Taiwan included Taipei, Jiufen, Shifen, Taroko, Sun Moon, & Taichung. Both our consultant, Vivi, & our driver, Henry, were excellent. We felt well taken care of from beginning to end. Henry was especially accommodating to our changing needs and requests. He was punctual, patient and attentive to our interests, even suggesting extra stops that may appeal to us & taking pictures for us. Despite some minor stomach issues at the first half of the trip (we were not able to eat some of the planned dinners), we still got to see many scenes & sites that surprised us: Taroko gorge was stunning; releasing sky lanterns was fun; the local wet market was lively; the oyster/clam digging area looked like a wet sand desert complete with a windy sand storm. Over all, everything went smoothly, and our group of 4 adults + 1 child, enjoyed our trip immensely. Thank you
