The Final Act of the Thai Teochew Wayang in Penang   Leave a comment


The Final Act of the Thai Teochew Wayang in Penang

The new show of the Thai Teochew Opera for the last year as they are not coming to Penang anymore due to our low RM and no enough payment after conversion. It was the show on Wednesday 4th October, 2017.  Sad, sigh as it is one of the FINAL Acts for season. Our local people cannot pay such  new sum asked by the Thai Troupe anymore due to  the poor present current economic situation in Penang.  I never ask the price like for a performance in a day or 2 performances a day of this Thai Teochew Troupe but I heard is around RM5,000 to RM6,000 per day usually limited to one performance. They are the better performers with lavish, updated and colourful intricate costumes.

I am hoping to docu-photograph the final performances of this better Thai Teochew Troupe in Penang for future historical records.
