Chinese Opera Appreciation Event
Presented by Vancouver Cantonese Opera Society
Vancouver Cantonese Opera Society presents, in collaboration with Bing Thom Architect Group and the Chan Centre at UBC, an event featuring an introduction to the history of Cantonese Opera as well as demonstrations of performance techniques such as gestures, miming, water-sleeves, singing and dialogue.
Renowned Beijing opera artists Catherine Li and Hoi-Seng Ieong will perform at the event alongside Vancouver Cantonese Opera Society’s director, Rosa Cheng and other artists.
Cantonese opera is one of the major categories in Chinese opera originating in Southern China’s Cantonese culture. It is a traditional Chinese art form, a distinctive and comprehensive performing art that combines Chinese music, singing, dialogue, pantomime, acrobatics, and martial arts. The mission of the Vancouver Cantonese Opera Society is to preserve and promote Cantonese opera in Canada.
