Meanwhile, the Xiqu Center of West Kowloon Cultural District along with the Shanghai Center of Chinese Operas, which is home to Shanghai-based traditional Chinese opera troupes, launched a festival in Hong Kong last year, which showcased performances by traditional Chinese opera artists from Shanghai and Hong Kong, including Peking Opera artist Wang Peiyu.

Farewell My Concubine was also staged during the festival.

In a related development, Chung says that a new venue for staging traditional Chinese operas is scheduled to open in a year in Hong Kong's Victoria Harbor.

As for Chung's background and links with Cantonese Opera, she has very impressive credentials.

Chung, who graduated from the California Institute of arts in 1997 with a master's degree in fine arts, majoring in theater lighting design, has worked with the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra - the only professional, full-sized Chinese orchestra in Hong Kong founded in 1977 - for nearly 10 years. And she learned Cantonese Opera from Law Karying, 71, a veteran Hong Kong actor, who was originally a Cantonese Opera artist.
