Curious about Cantonese Opera?  Wanting to experience something new?  Why not spend 90-minutes together with other Mozaic members and experience a live, abreviated performance of a Cantonese Opera on Wednesday evening, 3 April 2019.

The Tea House Theatre programme, is specially designed to introduce new audiences to Chinese traditional theatre.  We will enjoy a 90-minute performance, presented by their very own Tea House Rising Stars Troupe, showcasing a selection of short excerpts demonstrating a range of vocal and music styles. Our evening will also include narration by an expert moderator to help newcomers, like us, gain insight into the history of the art form.

To recreate the warm, authentic atmosphere of Hong Kong’s early 20th century tea houses, audiences are served traditional tea and dim sum during the performance – a delicious way to learn about the heritage of Chinese traditional theatre.

However much you know about xiqu, Cantonese opera, Chinese culture, history or literature, the Tea House Theatre offers a new kind of experience – join us and discover for yourself!
