Photographer's Note

A very special thank you to Colin, who posted a great photo from the Liyuan theatre in Beijing, which motivated me to go there as well.

There are a ton of theatres to choose from in Beijing to see CHinese opera, but I'm so glad I chose this touristy one, because they allowed visitors to watch the performers apply their make-up 40minutes before the show. Even though the Liyuan theatre is not a traditional one, and you won't get the 'true' Chinese opera experience, you will get the experience photographing performers before and during the show, which made it worth it to me.
Nikkor 50mm lens.
