HKUST Cantonese Opera Forum 2023 The Sustainability of Cantonese Opera Heritage: New Plays and New Audience 香港粵劇的承傳:新創劇目及年青觀衆的拓展

6:30pm - 9:30pm
CMA Lecture Theater L (LT-L)

Cantonese opera has picked up its momentum to once again flourish in Hong Kong in the post-Covid period, featuring non-stop performances with a large number of young artists joining the veterans, and numerous newly created works. Yet commentators have noticed the controversies aroused by some of the new plays and are alerted by the scarcity of young members of the audience. The present forum, which is open to the public, aims to facilitate exchanges among playwrights, directors, producers, actors, enthusiasts and researchers on issues essential to the sustainability of Cantonese opera.
