New & Free: Appreciation Series on MVOH 2020 Songs

At the onset of a new wave of COVID-19, theatres in Hong Kong poised to reopen have to close again, resulting in the cancellation of many long-awaited and re-scheduled Cantonese operatic shows. To assuage the disappointment of fans in Hong Kong and around the globe, the MVOH organizers offer a series of talks to enhance fans’ understanding and appreciation of selected songs from the MVOH 2020 concert. Speakers including Master Lau Wing-Chuen and several veteran Cantonese opera stars will highlight interesting aspects of the songs chosen, and provide insightful commentary in Cantonese. Fans can ask questions via live chat when the talk shows are being live streamed.

Each episode will consist of two parts. Part I (about 30 minutes) is an introduction to the song(s) chosen from the concert; Part II (about 1 hour) is the presentation by guest speakers. To watch the series being live streamed, or to re-watch each talk show afterwards, click here.
