Cantonese Opera at Temple Street
Outside the main Temple Street Night market, but still inside Temple Street but just outside the Tin Hau Temple itself, and around the corner from the fortune tellers, is the Opera Singing area.
Cantonese Opera is a unique singing style with its own musical system which is quite different from other types of music. Here in Temple Street enthusiastic amateur signers congregate to practice and perform. Although they may collect donations they are not really busking but are mostly there to encourage and develop their hobby.
You will see amateurs of all levels of skill, from the quite basic to professional quality. In the past some singers from Temple Street have gone on to have professional careers in Opera and other forms.
Performances can be heard from around 8:30pm until 11:00 most nights, but not including Wednesday as this is Horse Race Day.
