One of the most established Chinese Opera Troupes in the UK – the Manchester Cantonese Operatics Society – present an evening of traditional Cantonese Opera.

This is a unique opportunity to experience a form of Chinese performing arts with centuries of tradition for the first time in Lancaster at the Dukes Theatre. Combining powerful vocals and dramatic narrative with exquisite costumes and make-up, this show will explore Chinese opera through five specially selected plays each accompanied by live music performed by an ensemble of Chinese instruments including the Erhu, Dizi, Yangqin and percussion.
