Interactive Drama Workshop – Cantonese Opera meets K-Pop

This programme will be conducted in Cantonese.

Participating Artist: Spring Glory Cantonese Opera Workshop x Musette Tsang (One Table Two Chairs Charitable Foundation)

Other than the well-known classic repertoires, what about a modern story told with Cantonese opera?  K-Pop and Cantonese opera may seem remotely acquainted, yet there is much more beyond the imaginable. Theatre director Musette Tsang along with the Spring Glory Cantonese Opera Workshop, will spice up Chinese Opera with K-Pop elements in theatre format. Students can immerse themselves in a short drama while getting a taste of opera costumes and martial arts.

A thrilling battle is about to begin between two actors, with music, rhythm, dance and stylised movements all inspired by K-Pop and Cantonese opera. A dialogue and a try-out session will follow the short drama. It is time to step into the spotlight and learn basic moves like flicking and waving your stylish water sleeves!

Ever intriguing, Cantonese opera is composed of four elements of ‘singing, ‘acting’, ‘reciting and ‘acrobatic fighting’.  This interactive workshop promises to be an hour of refreshing experience for students who are new to Chinese Opera.
