Lanzhou Night Life
Lanzhou's nightlife is more traditional and is one of the better places, outside of Beijing, to view traditional Chinese opera. The opera performed around the city includes the most famous Peking Opera, Sha'anxi Opera (Qin ju), Henan Opera (Yu ju), and the local Gansu Opera (Long ju). The city is famed for its many teahouses, especially on Jiefang lu and Zhongshan nanlu, where local cadres and amateur retired workers will occasionally give performances of opera.
Folk Drama Performances
Although Long Opera is formally considered to be Gansu's local opera, many people in Gansu like Qin Opera. This is probably because the rhyme scheme of Qin Opera is more sonorous, emotional and exciting. This type of performance is one of the folk recreational activities of the region.
