Since 2013, the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts has offered a Cantonese opera degree in an effort to preserve the traditional art form designated as one of the world’s key cultural heritages.
Cantonese opera presents stories of Chinese history and mythology with colorful costumes, distinctive falsetto singing punctuated by gongs, and intricate gestures rich with symbolism.
