The Huguang Guild Hall (or Huguang Assembly Hall, 湖广会馆) in Beijing is a renowned Beijing opera (Peking opera) theatre. Built in 1807 , and at the height of its glory, the Huguang Guild Hall, along with the Zhengyici Peking Opera Theatre was known as one of the “Four Great Theatres” in all of Beijing. Many famous past and present opera performers have performed here.
The entire complex covers over a large area, and the main buildings of the hall include the opera building, Wenchang building, Xiangxian Temple and Chuwan hall. The theatre is renowned for its magnificent interiors, which is coloured in red, green and gold, and decked out with tables and a stone floor. The Huguang Guild Hall also contains a small museum which exhibits the theatre’s rich history of Beijing opera.
This combination museum-theater, housed in a complex of traditional buildings with gray tile roofs and bright red gables, has a connection with Beijing Opera dating back to 1830. To the right of the main entrance is a small museum filled with old opera robes and photos of famous performers (including the legendary Mei Lanfang), probably interesting only to aficionados. On the left is the expertly restored theater, a riot of color with a beautifully adorned traditional stage, paper lanterns hung from the high ceilings, and gallery seating on all three sides. Subtitles are in Chinese only, but brochures contain brief plot explanations in English.
