Haw Par Mansion is well-known for its east-meets-west architectural style, with nearly 80 years of history. It has been revitalized recently as Haw Par Music.

The guided tour allows participants to explore the historical building, including the private garden, painted glass windows from Italy and gold-gilded murals inside the Mansion.

Due to the overwhelming response last time, Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association (HKAAA) is honoured to rerun the Xiqu Centre Guided Tour with West Kowloon Cultural District Authority!

 

Xiqu Centre Guided Tour
Did you know that Cantonese opera performers always greet each other with “Good morning” no matter what time of day they meet? Or that in traditional tea houses balcony seats cost more than those closer to the stage? To find out why, join our Xiqu Centre Guided Tour and learn about our new venue and the rich history of the art of xiqu. The 60-minute tour, conducted in Cantonese, help you explore the Xiqu Centre facilities, learn about the architectural and design features, and discover fascinating facts about the culture and stories behind the art of xiqu. Tours are supplemented with multimedia elements and are perfect for newcomers to the art of xiqu. (Please note, as the backstage area is an active working zone it is not part of the guided tour.)

 

The dialogue session will be a sharing of WKCDA Technical and Production team’s work, especially on the technical aspect consideration in project building of the few significant West Kowloon theatres, such as Xiqu Centre, Freespace and other future venues. Mr Rae Wu will also share the overseas research and fieldtrips involved in the past, plus how they took the feedbacks from the industry to the design and building of theatres.
