The Ups and Downs of Ritualistic Cantonese Opera

The Ups and Downs of Ritualistic Cantonese Opera

Date: 2018/11/28 (Wednesday) to 2019/2/28 (Thursday)
Time: Library Opening Hours
Venue: Hong Kong Central Library (Arts Resource Centre)
Organiser: Jointly organised with the Hong Kong Association of Cantonese Opera Scholars

Once a strong tradition and having a century-long history of development, ritualistic Cantonese opera currently suffers a gradual decline due to cultural and social change. Focusing on the downturn, this exhibition presents the organisation, fund-raising, regional characteristics, construction of the bamboo theatres, troupe structure, training of artists and special features of the opera series. And through showcasing a collection of photos and relics, it brings to the general public the many facets of ritualistic Cantonese opera.
