    The Hong Kong Culture Centre is situated along the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade in the Kowloon Peninsula. Completed in 1989, this is a large complex with a 2000 seat concert hall, 1700 Grand Theatre, smaller Studio Theatre, Exhibition gallery as well as multiple exhibition foyers.

    The venue is used throughout the year for world-class concerts, theatre and musical productions, opera, dance and drama performances which you can reserve at the ticketing box office (open from 10am to 9:30pm daily) or reserve through the URBTIX website.

    Note: The Hong Kong Arts Festival is held during the early months each year. Numerous large scale performances take place at the Hong Kong Culture Centre as part of this important annual programme.

    It was not much to look at but this historic building is the only surviving pre-war cinema building in the urban area of Hong Kong. We wandered around the small lobby and learnt that it has become a venue dedicated to Cantonese opera. We were told some of the theater's interior were original.

    The Ko Shan Theatre and New Wing are the centrepiece of the city park along Ko Shan Park Road in the To Kwa Wan neighbourhood. While the theatre house is open during scheduled performances, the park grounds are available for use 24 hours a day.

    Here you will find nice, landscaped levels with park benches, elderly exercise equipment, children's playground area, football pitch and public toilets. In the end, it is a decent city park for area residents to enjoy and potentially worth spending a few minutes to enjoy if coming to Ko Shan for a performance.

    The theatre itself has been a place to take in Cantonese opera since the early 1980s. A bit overshadowed now with the opening of the magnificent Xiqu Centre in TST, this is still a popular venue for locals who appreciate and take in regular performances.

    Note: Much easier travelling to Ko Shan Theatre and park grounds these days with the opening of the nearby To Kwa Wan MTR Station, just 5-6 minute on foot.

    Interesting intro to elements of the Cantonese opera repertoire, in a modern and intimate setting (seating less than 200). Subtitles on screen means no need to consult program notes even if you do not understand Cantonese, although some know of Chinese history and culture will make the performance much more comprehensible. Unfortunately during Covid-19 no food or drinks allowed so the 'Tea House' setting goes for naught, but overall quite enjoyable even though I must admit opera (Chinese or Western) is not exactly my cup of tea. But setting quite close to the stage does allow me to watch the footwork, gestures and other details much more clearly. Performers are all young, which is good (this art form need new blood) though they may not be top notch technique wise. All told a worth-while experience.

    The Xiqu Centre is an elegantly designed performance venue and part of the West Kowloon Culture District. It officially opened in early 2019 and provides several theatres, studios and exhibition space for art and culture related events.

    Tickets for performances can be reserved through the Xiqu Centre website or at the ticketing booth on the ground floor. There are also guided tours (Cantonese, Mandarin and English) that can arranged for those who want to simply explore the grounds of Xiqu Centre. You'll find a few eateries on location as well.

    In addition to being a performance venue, the Xiqu Centre is an architecturally stunning building to view. It is described as reflecting the evolving nature of the art of Chinese opera. As such, you find much curvature, openings and open space when allow flow of people and feng shui. The exterior and interior are both appealing. The public is free to walk through the large openings of the building regardless if you are attending a performance or not. There is an Austin Station MTR Station entrance at Xiqu Centre as well. So don't hesitate to enter the large atrium area and have a look around.

    Note: Presently, all events in Hong Kong are suspended during the 5th wave of the pandemic. However, the Xiqu Centre website still has information about events and performances scheduled to be held in the future.
