Local Visit - Xiqu Centre Guided Tour

  • Xiqu centre 88 Austin Road Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon Hong Kong (map)

Did you know that Cantonese opera performers always greet each other with “Good morning” no matter what time of day they meet? Or that in traditional tea houses balcony seats cost more than those closer to the stage? To find out why, join our Xiqu Centre Guided Tour and learn about this new venue and rich history of the art of xiqu. A 60-minute tour, conducted in English has been arranged for RASHK members on Thursday, 18th July 2019. The tour will help explore the Xiqu Centre facilities, learn about the architectural and design features, and discover facts about the culture and stories behind the art of xiqu. Tours are supplemented with multimedia elements and are helpful for newcomers to the art of xiqu. (Please note, as the backstage area is an active working zone it is not part of the guided tour.)
