Day Fifty-two:

The Shanghai Grand Theatre

The Shanghai Grand Theatre

The Shanghai Grand Theatre,located at the northern edge of People’s Square,features performances of operas, musicals,ballets, symphonies,chamber music concerts,spoken dramas and various Chinese operas. The SGT is located next to the Shanghai Municipal Government building, the center of political power in Shanghai. Traffic is restricted on the road fronting these buildings and police officers watch the few large black sedans with tinted windows parked at the curb. Seconds after taking this picture a young man walked past me, he was dressed in a casual, wrinkled style, but what set him apart from the other young men wandering around the square was the clear earpiece and wire running into his shirt collar. One rule in China: watch what you are doing, other people are.
