Shanghai Yi Fu Theater
Yi Fu Theater has the longest history and the largest scale among all Chinese opera theaters in Shanghai. It was once known as Tian Chan Theater. Since its establishment in 1925, it has featured Peking opera (Beijing opera) performances and has been favored by many famous Chinese opera artists. Early on, it was dubbed as the Largest Theater in the Far East. This theater is significant in the development of Peking opera in Shanghai, even throughout China. A popular saying goes that the opera actor or actress would not become famous without demonstrating his/her best performance at Yi Fu Theater.
In early 1990s the theater was rebuilt and renamed Yi Fu Theater. In 1994, the new theater was open to the public with an elegant appearance and advanced facilities. Presently, Yi Fu Theater gains great reputation due to the classical performances of operas. People even say that Yi Fu Theater is a must-go if wanting to watch Chinese operas in Shanghai.
Nowadays, the Peking opera still is its trump card attracting numerous domestic and international audiences. Besides the wonderful Peking operas, many classical Kunqu and Shaoxing operas also feast the eyes of audiences. Almost 1,000 seats with two floors and quality audiovisual facilities are now equipped here to provide much convenience for all opera lovers.
