Southern District Cantonese Opera Parade

Cantonese opera, a kind of traditional Chinese operas, was inscribed on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Culture Heritage of Humanity in 2009. The Cantonese opera in Hong Kong has a distinctive local heritage as it has mingled the unique lifestyle and arts of Hong Kong.

Majestic bamboo theatres will be erected in different locations in Ap Lei Chau for the performances of fantastic opera excerpts by renowned Cantonese opera artists showcasing traditional Chinese culture. To deepen foreign visitors and the young audience’s understanding of the culture of Cantonese opera and traditional Chinese stories and to enhance their interest in this traditional form of drama, bilingual programme booklets will be provided. This activity will no doubt be equally attractive to opera fans and non-opera fans and this precious heritage will hopefully be preserved and passed on to the next generation.

Date:17-19 March
Venue: Football pitch on Ap Lei Chau
