The 5th Chinese Opera Culture Week, which attracted nearly 80,000 visitors, recently concluded in Beijing Garden Expo.
During the Chinese Opera Culture Week, more than 240 performances were staged by 23 professional art academies and non-government organizations from Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei Province. The event attracted nearly 80,000 spectators from all over the country. Cheng Hui, artistic director of the Chinese Opera Culture Week.
戏曲文化周期间，京津冀三地的23家专业文艺院团机构以及多家民间社团，联袂奉上了240多场演出，现场吸引了来自全国的游客近8万人次。中国戏曲文化周艺术总监程辉说：The reason it is called Cultural Week is that we have a particularly important purpose, which is to popularize Chinese opera culture. In all the parks, there are more than 30 spots where you can watch performances and interact with game installations. There are 500 immersive activities. Before the artists perform, they introduce the repertoire and genre and interact with the audience.
As a national opera carnival, the Chinese Opera Culture Week has become increasingly influential in recent years. It has a unique feature of "opera in the garden" and the "garden in the opera". Zhang Jie, deputy head of Fengtai District, explained:
中国戏曲文化周作为国家级戏曲嘉年华，覆盖面、影响力日渐深广，更稳步形成“园林中的戏曲”与“戏曲中的园林”情境互相编织的独有特色。丰台区政府副区长张捷说：Very interesting. It completely integrates the garden landscape and the plot of the performance to create an immersive performance.
In the garden, a rich variety of classic dramas and excerpts are presented in turn; Kunqu opera is organically combined with the scenery of the water town. Liu Tong, Director of Beijing Peking Opera Theatre.
北京园里，七家在京院团轮番献上丰富多样的经典小戏、折子戏；忆江南园里，昆曲雅乐与水乡风情有机结合；北京京剧院院长刘侗说：Our Peking Opera Theater has played a significant role in the promotion and publicity of Peking Opera among the general public through in-depth communication and exchange with theater fans using this platform. It is through this platform that some theater fans have a preliminary or in-depth understanding of Peking Opera, and thus enter the theater.
