  • The preservation and advancement of Chinese heritage, arts and culture.

  • Overview:
  • Since 1998, the Cantonese Opera Assn. has been presenting live performances, educational seminars, workshops and community outreach to the under-served Cantonese community of Silicon Valley.

    The performances and outreach programs assists in fostering an appreciation for the ancient tradition and symbolism of Cantonese-Chinese Opera. On several occasions, professional Cantonese opera troupes were commissioned from Guangdong, China to perform in Silicon Valley.

    In 1851, the first Chinese immigrant laborers were from Guangdong province. They were brought to the US to help build America's railroads and mine gold and silver. This society is deeply woven into the fabric and foundation of California.
