This book by the Chinese Opera Institute overviews the development of Cantonese opera in Singapore from the late nineteenth century, with particular emphasis on the "golden age" of Cantonese opera in Singapore from the 1930s to the 1960s. Besides commemorating the efforts that different generations have put in to keep this cultural art form going, the book also fulfils the role of Chinese opera in preserving Singapore's rich cultural heritage. With black and white photographs, glossary, bibliography plus a good deal of information unlikely to be otherwise available in English.
