Preservation of art and history has always been a hot topic in Hong Kong and particularly more so in the past decade. Some of you might recall the debate about the relocation of the Star Ferry Pier, the decision of the SCAD Hong Kong taking over the North Kowloon Magistracy which was acutely been fought over by the Cantonese opera group. Cantonese opera has been quite a niche interest especially for the silver hair population. To revitalize attention of this special culture amongst the mass public, the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority has initiated the establishment of a Bamboo Theater to promote the merits of this local music culture. This event marks the debut performance of the WKCD for next year and we certainly do look forward to experiencing more mind enlightening events like this for the new year.
