Chengdu Sichuan Opera Art Center
At the Chengdu Sichuan Opera Art Center, learn about the history of Sichuan opera, enjoy tea and local cuisine, and take in a performance. Located in downtown Chengdu, the comprehensive cultural center is made up of Jinjiang Theater, Yuelai Teahouse, Pansun Restaurant, and the Sichuan Opera Museum.

The highlight for most visitors is a performance at Jinjiang Theater. Made specifically for Sichuan opera, the theater boasts modern lighting, sound, and digital technology. Before the show, have a meal at the restaurant, or linger over tea at the two-story Yuelai Teahouse, which contains an ancient-style stage for small-scale opera performances. At the museum, browse photos, documents, and memorabilia that traces the history and development of Sichuan opera.

Historical Location

The Sichuan Opera Art Center was built on the site of the original Yuelai Teahouse, which dated back to the Qing dynasty. The Sanqinghui Opera Society—the most important Sichuan opera society of the time—hosted regular performances at the teahouse. Later renamed Jinjiang Theater, the teahouse was eventually torn down and replaced with the Sichuan Opera Art Center. In honor of its heritage, the center named its theater Jinjiang and its teahouse Yuelai.
