William Ho’s Participation in the documentary “Chinese Opera Diva – Hong Xiannu”


As a culturally diverse city, Vancouver is always chosen by Chinese immigrants as a place to settle while providing an environment to nourish Chinese culture and arts. It has also given the opportunity for Cantonese opera to blossom overseas. A master of Cantonese opera, Hong Xiannu made Vancouver the first stop for her North American Tour in 1982. As a veteran opera singer for more than 70 years, she had a profound influence on the Cantonese opera field worldwide. Her unique singing style called “Hong Technique” is considered a cultural treasure in China. Last year, Hong Xiannu Art Center announced the idea of shooting a documentary called “Chinese Opera Diva – Hong Xiannu” to honor her contributions towards Chinese culture and arts. This documentary revolves around her miraculously rewarding life in the history of Cantonese opera and the rich legacy she left behind.

Recently, Leisure Talk grasped the opportunity to interview the documentary production team, who flew to Vancouver to capture footage of Hong Xiannu’s early life. Fairchild TV host William Ho is known to be a Cantonese opera enthusiast who has performed and mced at numerous shows. In light of his familiarity with the evolution of Cantonese opera in Vancouver, the production team also asked William his perspective on this art form. He expressed that in spite of the diminishing popularity of Cantonese opera amongst the younger generation, there are still a population of older Chinese citizens in Vancouver who value the importance of opera singing. When William first immigrated to Vancouver, he was blessed with an opportunity to watch a Hong Xiannu’s performance. Her dazzling stage presence and strong vocals motivated him to give Cantonese opera singing a try. William is thrilled and fortunate to be a part of the documentary as a way to pay a tribute to an opera legend.
