Abstract
  • A trailblazer in Cantonese opera Instiling new elements into a traditional art form

    A unique treasure of the traditional Lingnan culture, Cantonese opera became the first art form of Hong Kong to be inscribed onto the UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2009. To engage the new generation of audiences, the presentation of traditional performing arts must also keep up with the times. An artist who seeks experimentation and breakthrough, Dr Liza Wang has introduced many innovative elements into Cantonese opera performance, instiling contemporary touches into the traditional art form while preserving the beauty of Cantonese opera.

    大膽嘗試 為傳統藝術注入新元素

    粵劇是傳統嶺南文化的瑰寶,更於2009年成為香港首項被列入聯合國教科文組織《人類非物質文化遺產代表作名錄》。傳統藝術要吸引新一代的觀眾,就要跟得上時代步伐。汪明荃博士敢於創新和突破,在粵劇演出中加入不少新元素,為傳統藝術增添了時代感卻不失粵劇之美。
