Enjoy Teochew music, opera from China troupe

Classic Teochew opera performances by local performers and the Guangdong Chao Opera Institute will be held this week.

THE 51-member Guangdong Chao Opera Institute from China will take to the stage in Johor Baru for the first time, to perform classic Teochew music.

Yong Wah Heng Music and Drama Club secretary Andy Tok said the performance would be held during the three-day Teochew Drum Music and Drama Extravaganza programme in celebration of the 50th anniversary of bilateral ties between Malaysia and China.

He said the programme would take place at the Permaisuri Zarith Sofiah Opera House, Johor Baru, from Friday to Sunday.

“Our club, as a non-governmental organisation that actively promotes Chinese culture and values, decided to invite performers from the Guangdong province to showcase the beauty of traditional opera.

“The China troupe had previously performed in Singapore, and many of their fans in Malaysia crossed the border to catch them live,” he said.

Tok said he hoped the show could generate more interest in classic Teochew music and drama among youths.

“The club’s opera troupe will perform on the first night of the event and the international troupe will take the stage on the next two nights.

“Opera fans only have to purchase one ticket to watch all three shows,” he said.

Tickets are priced at RM128, RM158, RM188 and RM288.
