The best shows in Beijing this October

The best theatre, dance and classical music in Beijing this October

October's here, and with it comes a host of shows to enjoy on one of the many stages around Beijing. Celebrating a huge two decades of bringing the world's best classical music to the capital, Beijing Music Festival kicks off this month. Featuring an evening of Welsh music, a celebration of Chinese contemporary composers, Beijing’s first Beethoven symphonic cycle and more, take a look at our handy guide of all the best shows taking place.

Events disappear from this page as they pass, so if you're looking at a sparse page you missed the boat [sad face]. But come back next month for another glut of events to keep you entertained.
