Cantonese opera is a traditional Chinese art form that involves music, singing, martial arts, acrobatics, and acting. Cantonese opera plays tell stories about Chinese history, traditions, culture, and philosophies.
S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation’s biennial Cantonese Opera Charity Show in 2014 features two nights of entertainment and excitement.
On May 17 and 18, twenty one members of the celebrated Guangzhou Cantonese Opera Institution, including prominent Cantonese opera artists OU Kai Ming, CHAN Wan Hung, LI Jun Sheng and CUI Yu Mei, accompanied by 2 Hong Kong based prominent performers, John Lau and Lanzy Choy, and 4 Vancouver based seasoned performers, Alice Choi, Annie Wong, Polly Hui and May Shih, will perform classic Cantonese Opera duets of love, valor and filial duties plus thrilling acrobatic action scenes that will bring audience to their feet.
To enhance the enjoyment for the non-Cantonese speaking audience, both evenings’ performances will be enhanced by English and Chinese captions.
