HKBU Century Club Organises Cantonese Opera Show
Hong Kong Baptist University Century Club organised a Cantonese Opera Show on 28 October at Sunbeam Theatre to promote Cantonese opera to alumni and the public. The event also aims at raising the awareness of the public that Cantonese opera has been inscribed onto the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity since 2009. Cantonese opera is also the first Hong Kong item recognised by UNESCO as a world intangible cultural heritage.
Before the show commenced, Professor Richard Ho, Honorary Professor of the Department of Chinese Language and Literature of The Chinese University of Hong Kong, and Dr Frankie Yeung, Vice-Chairman of Hong Kong Arts Development Council, were both invited to give sharing on the cultural values of Cantonese opera and how its development can be sustained in Hong Kong. The opera show, featuring Miss Joyce Koi and Miss May Ng, both lead actresses of Ming Chee Sing Chinese Opera Troupe, captured the attention of the full house. The event was supported by a number of Century Club members and alumni. The Club also organised a pre-event dinner gathering. Participants of both the dinner gathering and the show all enjoyed the evening to the fullest.
