Properly speaking, this is a opera stage. This three-level building is the largest opera stage in the Forbidden City. The lowest level is 210 square meters. There are pulley systems and suspension cables installed on each level. Between each level, there are openings that allow performers to be elevated or lowered to different levels by means of these cables.
