Chinese Opera Festival: Showcasing Troupes from across China
Why We Recommend it
A series of operas hailing from across China will showcase the diversity and rich traditions of the art form.
Showcasing nine programmes with 29 stage performances, this festival offers a valuable entry point into Chinese opera, covering ten opera genres.
With troupes from Shandong, Shanghai, Beijing, Suzhou, and Sichuan featured – among other places, this is a chance to see some performances that have previously not traveled as far as Hong Kong.
Two Cantonese opera programmes are featured. These will present among other traditional shows – “Enlightenment of the Goddess Mercy” and “Fairy returns her son to the mortal fairy.” A new Cantonese opera, “Battle of the Throne” – which is set in the Ming dynasty – is also on the menu.
