Overview

A taster of Hong Kong’s traditional entertainment

Description

The Xiqu Centre’s Tea House Theatre Experience is specially designed to introduce new audiences to Cantonese opera — the local form of Chinese opera or xiqu. Presented by our very own Tea House Rising Stars Troupe, the performance showcases a selection of short excerpts demonstrating a range of vocal and music styles. It also includes narration by an expert moderator to help newcomers gain insight into the history of the art form.

 

The current season begins on 1 July 2021, and features new selections of music performances, as well as two Cantonese opera excerpts – one classic and one newly-written. In addition, our young artists or special guests will perform Cantonese opera songs in a new segment, sharing beloved sung pieces from traditional repertoire.
