Enjoy an evening of spectacular performance for Cantonese Opera. All proceeds will be donated to the School of Chinese Opera, The Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts.

The songs and the speaking lines in Chinese Xiqu, including Cantonese opera, are the continuation of the rhyming literature of the Chinese language which started in the Poetry of the ancient times, and went through changes in format throughout history, from the Poetic Works of Chu and Han, the Poetry before Tang, and the disciplined Poetry of Tang, the Long-short form of Poetry of Song, the Tune of Yuan, to the Opera of Ming. The Cantonese Opera songs are therefore recognized as part of the classical literature of China. The theme of “ Two Decades Revelling in Cantonese Opera Golden Oldies ” is Classical Chinese Literature and Culture. The blueprint for the production of the Concert comes from this concept. We will create a high-quality Cantonese opera concert which will give the audience a memorable experience to treasure for a long time!

The traditional Cantonese Xiqu took place outdoors on bamboo scaffolding. This kind of improvised theatre is now rarely seen, except in the villages in the New Territories. With the Cantonese Xiqu performances moving into proper theatres and auditoriums, their productions have adopted more modern stage designs and changing lighting effects with images to present a cross-media visual impression to the audience which would render a free imagination for them to wander into their own space of appreciation. The traditional Chinese Xiqu pays particular emphasis on aesthetic simplicity on stage. The “ Two Decades Revelling in Cantonese Opera Golden Oldies ” concert follows this tradition to deliver sublime beauty for the enjoyment of the audience.

The stage design for the “ Two Decades Revelling in Cantonese Opera Golden Oldies ” parades “ Classics ”, “ Elegance ” and “ Simplicity ”. Free-flowing silk screen holds the beautiful mountains and waters. The exquisite door frames give the air of elegant charm. Where there is richness, there will be blanks to balance it off, projecting variety in the space on stage which results in nimble transitions from one setting to another to portray the feel of each song. If you want to view the superb stage design and its production, please come to the Concert on June 25. It is an experience which you should not miss!!

中國戲曲,包括粵劇,其歌曲及唸白都是韻文文學之演變而成,上溯詩經、歷楚辭漢賦、古體詩到唐今體詩宋詞元曲明雜劇,故可視為中國古典文學一部份。 「粵劇金曲廿載情」主題遂定為表彰中國古典文學文化,由此概念產生出製作的藍圖,極視聽之娛,有別一般粵曲演唱會,使觀眾可以享受到一個難忘的晚上!

傳統的粵劇戲曲會在戶外搭戲棚建戲台,現在這類竹棚已不常見,隨著時代變遷,戲曲多搬入室內演出場地,藉出色的舞台設計、變幻的燈光及投影映像等多媒體元素配合,能令整體戲曲演出的優美意境和感染力延伸,併發出更大更無盡的穿透力和想像空間傳遞予觀眾。中國的傳統戲曲多以簡約調和的美感為哲學,是次「粵劇金曲廿載情」的整體演出設計也由此承襲。

舞台設計將以「古典」、「高雅」、「精簡」等關鍵字組成。 輕飄的羅紗盛載萬千山水, 簡樸的門楣襯出留韻氣魄,即到豐腴之處卻又適當留白;建構出高雅又富韻味多變空間,曲目間輕巧的換場又會為觀眾帶來不同的觀感。欲知舞台的真貌,入場來一暏風采,留之待為耳目一新的驚喜吧!!
