Update: 2019-06-04     Source: chinadaily.com.cn

A special costume exhibition got underway at Yuexiu Culture Center in Guangzhou on May 30, displaying numerous Guangzhou's opera costumes, which demonstrates the inheritance of intangible cultural heritages and modern innovation.


A model displays a Cantonese opera costume at the exhibition. 

Used in Cantonese opera, Guangzhou's opera costumes feature distinctive making technique which is a provincial level intangible cultural heritage.

Instead of displaying the works in a static way, the exhibition made full use of new media platforms and installations to showcase the charm of traditional costumes. In addition, many lectures were held in several places to expand the exhibition’s influence.

There are also experience and interactive activities available during the exhibition in which visitors can design and try on costumes.


Visitors take photos of the Guangzhou made opera costumes that were displayed by opera artists.
