M01c | The Fascinating Cantonese Opera (In Cantonese) (Completed)

This programme consists of two sessions:

Session One: Guided Tour – Cantonese Opera Heritage Hall
On exhibition in this gallery are artefacts from Cantonese opera collected by the museum. They offer wonderful insight into the history and characteristics of the regional performing art form. There are over 200 exhibits, covering the origins of Cantonese opera, the development of the ‘Red Boat’ and the full-size troupes that performed regularly between Hong Kong and Guangdong, up to the heyday of Cantonese opera when stage productions and film versions co-existed, as well as touring performances.

Session Two: Workshop – Fun with Cantonese Opera
In this workshop, students will have a chance to appreciate some footages on Cantonese opera, to know more about Cantonese opera costumes, or be Cantonese opera singers, or learn basic operatic body gestures, giving them a way to experience the fun of Cantonese opera! This programme is designed for students without previous training on Cantonese opera.
