THE Chinese New Year Cantonese Opera Gala is a unique opportunity to experience Chinese performing arts for the first time in Lancaster.

Manchester Cantonese Operatics Society – one of the longest Chinese opera troupes in the UK – will be performing on January, 31, at this special event presented by Hua Xian Chinese Society as part of Lancaster’s Chinese New Year Festival.

The gala explores Chinese opera through five selected plays deeply rooted in a rich heritage and once enjoyed by royalty, aristocracy and everday people alike in Southern China.
