Singapore’s Nam Hwa Opera invited to perform in China.

Singaporean Teochew opera company, Nam Hwa Opera Limited (NHO), was invited by Shantou City in Guangdong, China, to perform at its prestigious Shantou Xie Hui Ru Chaoju Artistic Centre over two evenings, on 8 and 9 December. A cast of 24 performed extracts from four classical Teochew operas, as well as a full-length classic A Family of Three Imperial Officials. A study tour to the Guangdong Han Opera Inheritance Research Institute was also organised as part of NHO’s commitment to continuous learning and the sharing of good practices. This cultural exchange initiative was supported by the National Arts Council, Cultural Matching Fund and the Singapore International Foundation.
