In celebration of Asian Heritage Month, Todmorden Mills Heritage Museum and Arts Centre, in cooperation with the critically-acclaimed Little Pear Garden Collective, proudly presents a special presentation of Chinese opera performances this Saturday, May 6 at 2 p.m.

Entitled “Hundred Opera Flowers Pavilion: A Glimpse of Diverse Styles of Chinese Operas,” the presentation will showcase three different regional styles of Chinese opera: Beijing, Kun and Cantonese. Admission is free.

It has been established as a leader in the development and promotion of Chinese performing arts in Canada through the professional presentation of Canadian artists and their work, both locally and nationally. The Collective produces and performs high caliber concert performances, lectures, make-up demonstrations, costume exhibitions and choreographic workshops.
