HKAPA Conversations - Prof. Martin Lau: Developing the 21st Century Chinese Opera Performing Artists

(Conducted in Cantonese)


Chinese opera is recognised as a unique and supreme example of total theatre, requiring the most profound refinement of skills in singing, acting, characterisation, movement, choreography and acrobatics. This art form constitutes a valuable part of Chinese culture. In this talk, Professor Martin Lau, Dean of the School of Chinese Opera shares how the School adopts an innovative teaching and learning approach to equip young talents with necessary knowledge and skills to navigate the challenges of the 21st century.
