******************* EVENT SYPNOSIS *******************

To mark the revival of the ancient maritime silk route, the Guangdong Academy of Cantonese Opera has initiated a cultural exchange programme called "Cantonese Opera Showcase" with Chinese Theatre Circle Limited (CTC) by sending a 70 member troupe to Singapore to present three evenings of Cantonese Opera at the Drama Centre (National Library Building level 3) on 2 - 4 October 2015 at 7.30 pm.

The programme consists of two full-length operas, namely "The Legend of Goddess of Mercy" on 2 October about the household story of the good deeds performed by the Goddess of Mercy on earth, and "The Nan Hai Adventurer" on 3 October narrating the famous episode of the trading vessel NanHai plying the maritime silk route during the Song Dynasty (AD 960 - 1279) , as well as "Cantonese Opera Extravaganza" on 4 October showcasing exciting opera excerpts such as "The Magnificient Ape", "Woman Warrior Mu Gui Ying", "The Arrogant Princess", "Ode To The Peony Flower", and "A Timely Rescue By Liu Jin Ding" and featuring rising stars in Cantonese Opera in China.

The troupe comprises three renowned winners of the "Plum Blossom Award", the highest accolade for Chinese theatre practitioners in China, namely, Din Fan, Jiang Wen Duan, and Liang Shu Qing, an invigorating orchestra, and a group of energetic upcoming young artists. Regarded as the best troupe in the Guangdong Province, the quintessence of this troupe is the unique style of singing of the lead artists as well as the stunning martial art skills of the young performers.

Tickets at $50, $30, $20, & $10 . Ticket prices exclude administrative fee. 20% discount for senior citizens above 60 years old, students and PAssion Card members.
