 Due to concerns over the transmission of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and in the interest of public health and safety, the University of Chicago has issued new guidance suspending most University-sponsored events and public gatherings of more than 100 people, including this performance.

The tradition of Cantonese opera, with its vivid costumes, distinctive music, and dramatic presentation, has been fostered and developed for over 500 years. Since its inception, this living practice has been carried on by sifu, experienced performers and masters of the form fluent in the narratives of myth and history. For one performance only, opera sifu will present a collection of these canonical stories at the Logan Center through martial arts, acrobatics, acting, and singing, accompanied by traditional Chinese percussion. Join us for a mesmerizing evening of theater as we celebrate the distinct art form of Cantonese opera.

Si-fu: An Evening of Cantonese Opera is presented here by the Logan Center and UChicago Global, along with the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (NY), the Center for East Asian Studies at The University of Chicago and the Chinese Fine Arts Society.

Tickets: $25 General | $10 Seniors | $5 Students & Children 5 and Under
Tickets include a post-show reception

This performance will run approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.
