The face changing show, or "bian lian" in Chinese, is an ancient Chinese dramatic art and important aspect of Chinese Sichuan opera. Performers wave their arms and twist their heads, and their painted masks change again and again and again. They also wear vividly colored masks, which they change within a fraction of a second.
It's not such a hot attraction for tourists but Baguo Buyi's two big draws -- its burning hot Sichuan cuisine and nightly face changing (bianlian) show -- justify a visit. Bianlian is a fascinating component of Sichuan opera, where the performer magically whips through half a dozen or more fearsome and brightly-colored face masks seemingly by magic.
