"These have been warmly received by young people, and that has inspired us to create more shows for children. The Peking Opera series for children has become one of our best-selling shows."

The Star Theater, established in 2009, has three performance spaces, each with about 200 seats, and is dedicated to presenting Chinese traditional operas. It hosts an annual Xiqu Opera Black Box Festival, which is credited with popularizing ancient Chinese operas among younger audiences who are attracted to the intimacy of small theaters.
