Starlight bios

Cantonese Opera is one of the art form of Chinese Traditional Theatrical Performance. It has been recognized as a unique example of total theatre requiring profound skills in singing, acting, characterization, movement, choreography and acrobatics. On top of skills, the Opera requires extravagant costumes and make-up to enhance theatre performance.

Starlight Cantonese Opera (SCO), established in the year 2000, is a cultural group organized by a group of Cantonese Opera amateurs originated from Hong Kong. Our objective is to preserve, maintain and introduce this cultural art to the general public and other ethnic communities in Canada. We also extend our aim to introduce this art to the younger generation in Canada so that Canadian born Chinese/Hong Kong Cantonese origin descendants have a chance to touch and recognize their own culture. All through the years since its establishment, we had organized annual performances at Markham Theatre and the Leah Posluns Theatre. We were also invited by communities such as: the Royal Ontario Museum, Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Toronto, Habour Front Centre, Mississauga Arts Festival, Mon Sheong Generetic Centre, Markham Civic Centre, First Markham Place, etc. to provide performance for their events. We had also provided performances for numerous communities fund raising event.

In 2009, Starlight also named as Starlight Chinese Opera. actively promote both Cantonese and Beijing Opera in the community through various seminars, workshops and performances.

In April 18, 2012, Starlight registered as non-profit organization and rename as "Starlight Chinese Opera Performing Arts Centre". Alice Chan and Marianne are directors.
