Did you know that Cantonese opera performers always greet each other with “Good morning” no matter what time of day they meet? Or that in traditional tea houses balcony seats cost more than those closer to the stage? To find out why, join our Xiqu Centre Guided Tour and learn about our new venue and the rich history of the art of xiqu. The 60-minute tours, conducted in Cantonese, English or Mandarin, help you explore the Xiqu Centre facilities, learn about the architectural and design features, and discover fascinating facts about the culture and stories behind the art of xiqu. Tours are supplemented with multimedia elements and are perfect for newcomers to the art of xiqu. (Please note, as the backstage area is an active working zone it is not part of the guided tour.) Group tours can also be arranged for schools and registered charitable or non-profit organisations on request.
