Skip to 0 minutes and 8 secondsHello, everyone! I'm Chow Chun-kay, president of Board of Directors of the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. After the handover of Hong Kong, I made a proposition to the SAR Government and sponsored the "Interschool Cantonese Opera Contest" together with "Lam Kar Sing Foundation Limited" to encourage and lead many students to deepen and learning of Cantonese Opera. During my presidency of the first "Cantonese Opera Advisory Committee", I helped to promote Cantonese Opera to be assessed as "Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity" by UNESCO. Cantonese Opera is a Chinese traditional performance art with abundant Cantonese cultural characteristics. I'm glad to be here to welcome you to join the first "online public" course of Cantonese Opera made by HKAPA.

Skip to 0 minutes and 56 secondsI hope that more friends from all over the world who are interested in Cantonese Opera can take part in this course and study Cantonese opera together. I also hope that you can deepen your understanding of this traditional performance art.
