Delight in rich and vibrant performances by Chinese and local artistes

Captivating and colourful performances by local and Chinese artistes await visitors at the festival. Flying in specially to perform in Singapore, are the Putian Southern Temple Shaolin Monks and the Puxian opera troupe from the reputable Puxian Opera Theatre (福建省莆仙戏剧院).

The Putian Southern Temple Shaolin Monks, whose roots date back to over a thousand years, will put up action-packed and adrenaline-charged martial arts performances. Having performed in various countries, including Australia, Japan, India, and Spain, these monks are set to captivate audiences with their awe-inspiring martial arts skills.

Another key highlight is the Puxian opera, a long-lasting art form with historical roots in the Tang and Song dynasties. The art form has gained widespread recognition across China, following the debut performance of《踏伞行》 (Ta San Xing), a Puxian opera, during the prestigious Spring Festival Gala 2023. Audiences can expect to catch an excerpt of《踏伞行》put up by the very same performers, Wu Qing Hua (吴清华) and Huang Yan Yan (黄艳艳), who performed on the Spring Festival Gala 2023. Huang Yan Yan is a renowned performer who clinched the distinguished Plum Performance Award for her performance in《踏伞行》. There will also be performances of other well-known Puxian operas such as《春草闯堂·抬轿》by actors from the Puxian Opera Theatre.
