First Night of the Cantonese Opera   Leave a comment


First Night of the Cantonese Opera

First Night of the Cantonese Opera of 2016  marked the Opening Congratulatory Tribute to the Taoist King of Hades during this Festival of the Hungry Ghost at this location in Penang. Last night was the 10th day of the Seventh Moon of the Chinese Lunar Calendar (12th August, 2016).

This is the only Cantonese Opera Troupe from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia thus our very own local Troupe. However, sad to say this Troupe, according to the Lady Owner, is smaller in size than last year. From my observation of my photo-shooting over last 5 years, the performers are aging steadily and the musicians too. If there is no younger performers taking over, this Troupe, at  best, will last another few years more. It is sad but definitely true.
