A Night of Cantonese Wayang   Leave a comment


A Night of Cantonese Wayang

During the month of the Festival of the Hungry Ghost in George Town, Penang, Malaysia, we get to see a variety of Chinese Opera in different dialects like Hokkien, Teochew, and lesser ones like Cantonese and Hakka (which I had not seen before). Here is a sample of Wayang or Chinese Opera in Cantonese which is my referred choice due to their beautiful costumes barring the ages of the able and good performers.

Wayang photo-shooting continues   Leave a comment


Wayang photo-shooting continues

With my limping left leg. the blogger continued photo-shooting of this only Cantonese Chinese Opera or Wayang in the city. While mobility can be problematic, i took a chair and sat down to shoot using my 70-200 mm telephoto lens. There is a problem with the lighting on the stage with my opinion. The performers are lighted up well in some location and cast in dark shadow in other location thus selecting spots for photography is precise timing and some luck.

Happy viewing.
