Photographer's Note

A Cantonese Opera lead actress putting on make-up backstage. Singapore is a multiracial,multicultural country, with Chinese population forming the majority. The traditional Chinese performance art is still to a certain extend "alive" in this modern nation, Cantonese Opera is just one of the artforms. Traditional opera is actually a form of street-performance, during major Chinese festivals or temple celebrations, temporary stage will be set up within temple ground and opera troupe will be invited to perform for the deities as well as laymen, and best of all, the show is free! so next time if you happen to come across such performance, do try to go backstage...it's a totally interesting world of its own.
