Today we spent the morning at the world famous Beijing (or Pekin) Opera School. This is where the students train to be Opera actors. It is a very difficult craft that includes acrobatics, elaborate costumes, extreme make up and exaggerated expressions. The children in the picture picture above must learn to stand in that crazy (standing) split position for half and hour at a time.  Posted by Hello
