As a child, I was obsessed with Cantonese opera. I was enrolled in the 4th course of the Hong Kong 八和 Cantonese Opera Academy. Unfortunately, I had to quit due to the pressure of work and life. In the past ten years, I have resumed my interest under the skillful guidance of many famous teachers including Yang Ming, Man Chin Sui, Zhi Bogen, Li Siu Wah, Fan Jinhua, etc. I have perfected my singing techniques under Master Tong Ga Jui, and my performance techniques under Teacher Lee Siu Wah. I have also participated in the ministry of Gospel Cantonese Opera! After immigrating to Vancouver, I have been given the opportunity to perform in the Vancouver Cantonese Opera productions, which has enhanced my experience in performing arts.
is a non-profit and charitable society with a mission to preserve and promote Cantonese opera in Canada.
Vancouver Cantonese Opera acknowledges that we work and perform on the unceded and traditional territory of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.
