The history of Cantonese opera in Hong Kong can be dated back to the period between 19th century and early 20th century when a number of troupes, organised by Guangzhou companies, performed in Guangzhou, Hong Kong, and Macau. Since then, Cantonese opera became a major entertainment for Hong Kong people. Notable artists and troupes emerged with many popular repertoires created.
