in the ghost's month, opera show is rare unless from those old traditional temple. most of them 'celebrates' with those 'brothers' with dinner and getai.

next month is the monkey god festival month...... will have lottsa opera shows.....but then think you need to ask permission to shoot.

Thanks Kiwi for helping to check it out..
Capturing the motions and expression of these Opera Actors & Actress is very challenging.. :D A diminished arts and event in Singapore. :sweat:
Capture them before they are gone...

Do you read chinese newspaper? You can buy a copy of Lianhe Zao Bao, inside they will show all the various geitai performing at the various area.

If you looking for the traditional opera show, sometime they will show in the newspaper oso...saying which temple is having one. :bsmilie:
