Yunfeng Cantonese Opera Troupe: To Persist is to Inherit

Jia Hua lately disappointedly found that Cantonese opera faces shrinking room in urban areas, and the title of intangible heritage of humanity has not brought many actual helps to private-owned Cantonese opera troupes.

It is 4:30 PM of June 10th. In Yuehai Seafood Restaurant in Shishu Road of Guangzhou, Jia Hua, the leader of Yunfeng Cantonese Opera Troupe, is guiding his staff to put way all instruments and equipments on the stage.
 
Under the stage, dozens of opera fans are still immersing the performance with aftertaste. Some fans start a chat with Jia Hua. Jia Hua know them well. Some have become their fans since the beginning of the troupe.
 
6月10日下午四点半,广州市诗书路粤富海鲜酒楼,云峰粤剧团团长嘉华正熟练地指挥大厅舞台上的人把乐器和话筒归位。舞台下稀稀拉拉坐着几桌意犹未尽的老戏迷,有的还跟嘉华热络地打招呼——对嘉华来说,这些戏迷太熟悉了,有些资深戏迷甚至在剧团成立初期就开始跟随。
 
Yunfeng Cantonese Opera Troupe is the only private-owned troupe performing traditional Cantonese opera with full make up and costume. Yunfeng performs Cantonese opera from 2:30 PM to 4:30 PM every day since they moved here. Jia Hua introduced that all staff need to come here at least one hour before the performance for make up and costume.
 
云峰粤剧团是目前广州市内唯一带妆在茶楼驻点出演折子戏的民间粤剧团,上月初从海珠区搬迁到此,每天下午2点半到4点半演出。嘉华介绍说,基本上所有演员会至少提前一个小时到达,上妆,开嗓,上台表演,收拾乐器,离开,每天都是如此,风雨无阻。
 
In 2009, Cantonese opera was listed as “Masterpieces of the Intangible Heritage of Humanity in the world”, which has given a quick shot of energy to Cantonese opera and excited many Cantonese opera fans. But Jia Hua lately disappointedly found that acting as the living fossil of Cantonese culture, Cantonese opera faces shrinking room in urban areas, and the title of intangible heritage of humanity has not brought many actual helps to private-owned Cantonese opera troupes.
 
2009年,粤剧正式列入《世界人类非物质文化遗产代表作名录》。这给广东粤剧界注入了一支“强心针”,也让广大粤剧戏迷为之兴奋。但嘉华略失望地发现,作为广东文化活化石的粤剧,在城市里的生存空间有所收缩,非遗称号也并没有给像他们这种民间粤剧团带来太多实质性的帮助。
