Extending festival greetings to the audience, Yue said she believed the Peking Opera rendition would help boost friendship between China and Britain.
The theatre was full with spectators, mostly parents and kids.
Lin Ying, who watched the opera with her two-year-old daughter, said she moved from China to Britain several years ago and Saturday's performance just well brought back memories about hilarious atmosphere during the Spring Festival in her motherland.
"It's excellent and awesome," said Curt Fahndrich, a resident of London. "We all know the story of Pinocchio, but what I like better is the interpretation."
Sam Mackover, Deputy Mayor of Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, said he was impressed by children's color and energy during the performance.
"People are the same everywhere in the world, but they express themselves differently," he said. "After watching the performance, it make me want to visit China, because it is a distinguished way to bring the opening China to people here."
