“Cantonese Opera in the Cloud” is a virtual production offered by Vancouver Cantonese Opera primarily to an audience whose outings are restricted by the COVID-19 pandemic but wants to enjoy well-known Cantonese operas in the comfort of their own homes.
“The Fairy of the Emerald Green Lake” is a Vancouver Cantonese Opera production in 2005 and it is the 3rd series of the Cantonese Opera In The Cloud. It is a romantic comedy, a love story between Jeung Jan and Fairy Carp. Our protagonists are mercilessly tested during their love journey.
In this series, we are bringing you a new component “The Preview” to help you better understand the opera, thus enjoying the opera to the fullest. We will share with you the outline and the context of the story, an introduction to the main characters, some special performance techniques, and a glimpse of the wonderful costumes and headdresses in the opera.
With our Chinese and English subtitles, audiences will be able to easily follow the opera.

“Keeping the Tradition Alive”
Cantonese opera (粵劇) is one of the major categories in Chinese opera, originating in southern China’s Guangdong Province. It is a traditional Chinese art form, involving music, singing, martial arts, acrobatics, and acting.
The Vancouver Cantonese Opera is a non-profit society incorporated on June 30th, 2000. Our mission is to preserve and promote Cantonese opera in Canada. We endeavor to present the unique traditional art form of Cantonese opera at the highest level to both Chinese and non-Chinese audience. We also strive to collaborate with our stakeholders to meet the fundamental need for spiritual and aesthetic satisfaction and richness in our lives.
On February, 23rd, Canada Revenue Agency designated Vancouver Cantonese Opera as a charitable organisation. On November 28th, 2007, the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Committee invited Vancouver Cantonese Opera to be one of their partners in the 2008 Cultural Olympiad.
- We produce two large scale Cantonese opera productions and one Multicultural Heritage Festival annually.
- Our outreach programs include Cantonese Opera singing class, opera performance technique class, children opera class, educational workshops in school and communities performances in multicultural events.
