Interesting! Never knew this month existed before, but it's a good chance for people interested in exploring Asian culture to check some interesting stuff out. I will post Toronto-related stuff here, but the Government of Canada has a website (for the entire country): http://www.canadianh...que/index_e.cfm

Oh, damn..

STYLES

This first annual free Chinese performing arts show at Todmorden Mills will
showcase three difference regional styles of Chinese opera: Beijing, Kun,
and Cantonese.

Canadian artists will be joined by international opera star, Mr. Yang Yan Li
from Beijing. You will be treated to a rare performance from a master of the
"jing" (painted face) role of Beijing opera. Mr. Yang specializes in the Qiu

many principal roles in famous classical repertoires such as "Stealing the
Royal Horse", "Yao Qi", and "Peaceful Reconciliation between the General and
the Premier". Among the many awards Mr. Yang has received, he was awarded
the prestigious Wen Hua Award and Wu Ge Yi Award for his excellent
performance in the new opera entitled "Tears of Hong Kong" in 1998.

I've been told I'm yella on the inside, but I don't kid myself.

I'm happy with being an interested observer.

Also, that opera is only a few hours after I finish the graveyard shift! Oy vey.
