12,000 Theatre Fans Enjoy a Feast of Chu Opera in Xiaogan

 

 

During the National Day, 16 operas performed by Hubei Experimental Chu Opera Troupe were put on in Xiaonan Auditorium, attracting many theatre fans to watch.

 

To enrich cultural life of middle and old aged theatre fans in Xiaogan urban area during the festival, over 50 performers of Hubei Experimental Chu Opera Troupe gave up their vacation in the National Day to elaborately organize16 traditional operas and newly created modern dramas including Night Rain, Guo Dingxiang, Under One Roof. They performed for the masses for free in Xiaonan Auditorium in the morning and afternoon from October 2 to October 8.

 

“I’m unable to walk and I can’t go out. I like watching Chu operas for the whole lifetime. For the aged, the Chu Opera Troupe is really thoughtful. We are really grateful to them!” said Rao Anmin, a 66-year-old retired worker. Dramas performed by Hubei Experimental Chu Opera Troupe are really legitimate and elegant and very popular with audiences. Without these performances, he will “stay” at home wearily. He participated in all performances during the National Day and hoped that more similar activities could be held afterwards.

 

Wang Jialun, an actor of Hubei Experimental Chu Opera Troupe told the journalist that although he gave up the opportunity to reunite with family members during the National Day, their arduous working was recognized by theatre fans. In particular, all performers were very happy when they saw that a few theatre fans brought taborets with themselves owing to insufficient seats and heard applauses from enthusiastic audiences.

 

It is learned that the masses watching Chu opera performance during the National Day reached 12,000 persons/times.
