Local Cantonese Opera – an opera of the seniors, experienced and the aged
It saddened me, even as a senior citizen, that the local Cantonese Opera is slowly reaching its end of life cycle. I had taken the photographs of this Kuala Lumpur-based Troupe for more than seven years and had seen the same musicians and performers for over these years. Slowly aging and getting less healthier with some, I noted. The unique quality of the musical troupe was the only aged violinist available in all the Chinese Opera Troupes that I had ever encountered. There is no under-study or apprentice to take over from him, I can see.
Last year in 2014, there was a guest female performer from Hong Kong and some younger male performers, but not this time around in 2015, I noticed that there is no special invited foreign prformers or younger supporting cast at all. Sad but true. Let us hope for the best for this one and only local Cantonese Wayang Troupe in Malaysia. Malaysia Boleh (Can Do It).
