One Opera Singapore is a Chinese opera showcase that unites several local opera troupes from different dialect groups in Singapore. Cantonese Opera, Hainan Qiong Opera, Hubei Huangmei Opera, Hokkkien Opera, together with Teochew Opera sharing one stage to perform. Audiences can enjoy the beauty of Chinese opera in different dialects all in one show.
Chinese opera is our excellent traditional culture. All kinds of traditional opera art forms share one root and they can always adapt from each other. Although their performance methods and ways of expression are different, they come from the essence of traditional Chinese culture. It is our mission to preserve and develop this beautiful art form.
In addition to strengthening the friendship and exchange among various local opera troupes, we also hope that through such collaboration, we can carry our local Chinese opera art further and make it stronger!
