Last Saturday, I went to Yau Ma Tei theatre with my host family to see a Cantonese Opera which is typically part of Hong Kong’s local culture. As a Hongkonger, I was much ashamed to have seen Cantonese Opera only once when I was very small. I can hardly remember anything of it.
I watched a random piece of Cantonese Opera with a whole new perspective. And I enjoyed the show very much. Although it can be shocking at first, I really liked the beautiful Chinese costumes and the story. This made me want to defend this form of art.
