Guangdong Han Opera is one of the three major operas in Guangdong and a national intangible cultural heritage. "The center will carry out activities such as teaching, exchanges and performances of Guangdong Han Opera in both offline and online forms," said Zhang Guangwu, president of Guangdong Han Opera Inheritance Research Institute. "We will give full play to the advantages of the Internet to ensure better dissemination of our traditional culture, especially in the face of the epidemic."

Talking about the cooperation with Mauritius, Zhang explained that it started from the 2022 Hakka Spring Festival Gala.

Guangdong Han Opera enjoys a good popularity among Hakka people, while Hakka people in Mauritius make up about 90 percent of the local Chinese. This year, the overseas segment of the gala was held in Port Louis and presented four classics of Guangdong Han Opera, which won the applause of the audiences there.

Jean Paul Lam, chairman of Mauritius Chinese Culture and Arts Commission president of the China Town Foundation in Mauritius, is a fourth-generation Chinese. He got in touch with Zhang after the gala, and the two sides came up with the idea of such a center.

"The center provides a new exploration for the revitalization and development of Guangdong Han Opera," Zhang said, "and we also want to find a replicable model of overseas dissemination to promote traditional Chinese culture."
