Passing Down the Legacy of Cantonese Opera
In February 2017, Rising Stars of Cantonese Opera returns with two romantic comedy classics and four entertaining excerpt performances on six consecutive nights. Featuring a cast of fourteen emerging actors, the showcase is led by returning Artistic Curator and Cantonese Opera virtuoso Law Ka-ying.
With expert guidance from Law Ka-ying, heartfelt performances by the emerging actors, and backstage support from the professional production team, this season’s Rising Stars programme reflects the Xiqu Centre’s commitment to passing on the legacy of Cantonese Opera and promises a delightful treat to welcome in the Year of the Rooster.
