The Nature of Creativity in Cantonese Opera: Perception Changes of Artists, Connoisseurs and Beginners since 1930s in Hong Kong

This project acts as a pilot study for application of a GRF project. I hired an RA who was familiar with the repertoires and styles of Cantonese opera for seeking and compiling relevant literature as well as as analysis of selected Cantonese opera excerpts. Personal style of singing of selected artist was shown through a comparison among three versions of some excerpts of a selected play. It was shown that creativity in Cantonese opera appears differently in the Chinese context of Cantonese opera. The project also provides evidence to support that some of the artists in early 20th century have shown their personal creativity by performances, which has founded a good model for the modern practice.
