The Magic Of Yue & Huangmei Operas
Huangmei Opera and Yue Opera are among the most famous Chinese operas. The former became very popular in Malaysia in the 1960s due to its promotion in Shaw Brothers period movies; the more notable ones being The Kingdom and the Beauty (江山美人) and The Love Eterne (梁山伯与祝英台). Unlike the relatively "modern" folksy sound of Huangmei Opera, the Yue Opera, on the other hand, is well known for its femininity in terms of the singing, performing and staging styles. This lecture performance at TLC is led by Zhou Yan, a first class opera artiste.
