The M+ museum has recently built a Cantonese Opera House – like appearance to recreate the glamour and glory of Cantonese Opera. This has not only attracted the elderly who can watch Cantonese Opera, one of their favourite past times, all day round. But also, curious teenagers are also attracted by this new idea of renewing cultures through contemporary settings.
The Chinese Opera is screened on a wide screen inside the theatre – not your authentic operas we see in more traditional-styled Opera theatres.
Hong Kong has always been in a struggle to preserve its traditional cultures to seek for a local identity. Do you think that this museum/ display can revive this traditional art as well as give a deeper dimension to Hong Kong’s cultural sector?
