The June 2019 issue of That's Beijing is out now – paper-and-ink form citywide, digital pdf form right here or in your browser here. Editor-in-Chief Valerie Osipov introduces the magazine:


There are many things to love about China. Street food, Taobao, cheap public transportation, WeChat Pay – the list goes on. There’s just something about this place that’s unlike anywhere else in the world. (Really though, where else can you eat hot pot at all hours of the night?) Another reason to love China: the thousands of years of history – and a culture built on preserving its significant emblems, from ancient temples to traditional art forms. 

One such emblem: Chinese opera. Generally coined as xiqu, this imperial drama form is held sacred in Chinese theater to this day. In this month’s cover story, Edoardo Donati Fogliazza takes us through xiqu’s own long-spanning history and how it’s still surviving today, thanks to its devoted and selfless practitioners. It doesn’t stop there: Hear from opera actor Liu Jianyang, learn how to interpret hand gestures and how to identify characters simply by their face masks (shout-out to my sister for the beautifully designed illustrations). Check out the new issue for your quintessential guide to Chinese opera. 

Elsewhere in the magazine: 

  • That’s PRD Editor-in-Chief Matthew Bossons takes us through a revealing and captivating photography series of China;

  • Bryan Grogan catches up with British band Fujiya & Miyagi before their Beijing show;

  • And Holly Baer tries out TRB’s new French fusion restaurant Merci.

Until next month,

Valerie Osipov
Editor-in-Chief
