Tianjin Opera Museum

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
Tianjin Opera Museum is housed in the building previously known as the Guangdong Guildhall, which was built in 1907 and was frequented by Sun Yatsen and other Guangdong revolutionaries. The former guildhall has an intricate and luxurious central hall where opera is performed during March and April. The conventional Guangdong style courtyard now houses displays and exhibitions relating to the history of operatic performances and performers in Tianjin.
The umbrella shaped caisson is hung from the ceiling right on top of the stage, yet there are no columns to support the stage entrance. The caisson is not purely decorative but is acoustic equipment, by which sound on the stage is amplified and transmitted by the caisson in a natural way without the aid of a modern amplification system. The sound is audible throughout the theatre. The audience has no difficulty in hearing dialogues spoken or melodies sung by actors or musicians.
From the viewpoint of its architecture, the Tianjin Opera Museum is unique. This place will leave a pleasing and unforgettable memory and justify the proud cultural tradition of China.
