【雲上嶺南】The birthday parade of Hua Guang reappeared!
Thanks to highly skilled martial arts masters, the artistic charm of Cantonese opera spreads forever.
Master Hua Guang, the founder of Cantonese opera in Guangdong province, was born on the 28th of the ninth Chinese lunar month. According to traditional customs, Cantonese opera troupes carry the statue of Hua Guang on a parade, which has a history of 300 years. Every November, the disciples of Luanyu Hall hold a grand parade to celebrate the birthday of Master Huang Guang. However, due to some reasons, the parade was suspended in 2022 and resumed on March 20, 2023.
On that day, the lively atmosphere of Luanyu Hall returned. Many masters and their disciples gathered and embraced each other. They carried the statue of Master Hua Guang on the parade. And the Cantonese opera, Dragon and Tiger Martial Arts staged a comeback on Yongqing Fang again.
