China ge zai xi @ Cheng Huang Temple

Jennifer say:


Cheng Huang Temple near Geylang police station is back to its nearly 3 months of opera by troups from China and singapore.

The April performance is from China Xiaman troup. I had seen two performances so far. Today and last saturday. In fact when The xiamen troup came in 2006, i had also seen their performance.


Last sat performance was a rather boring story:

I am not sure of the opera title.

But the story goes like this:

Zhou was drinking wine in a brothel when he saw X bullying Jing, a poor girl whom was tricked to enter the brothel to work by singing when her parents died. He helped to fight off X. X was the son of the minister so he had often used his dad's reputation to bully the villagers.

Jing was very grateful for Zhou help. While Zhou went off, he dropped his jade that later Jing vowed to return to him dressed as a guy.

Zhou was placed under arrest for fighing X. As a result, he ran away and meet xiulan. Xiulan saved him by placing him in her dad graveyard area to hide. Xiulan was the daugher of a officer. she was actually bethored to Zhou at a young age. When her dad died, her stepmother took her to marry another guy. When xiulan stepmum knew that Xiulan was hiding Zhou, she informed the officers to come to arrest Zhou. Xiulan stopped the troops while zhou escaped.

Wen and her uncle, aunt and her cousin tried to escape from the coming robbers. As a result, wen was seperated from her relatives and captured by the robbers whom wanted to take her as wife. The robbers took Wen to a temple. At the temple, zhou came in. When he heard Wen cries, he killed the robber head and saved Wen.

Wen asked zhou to take her to her house that is many mountains away. At a deserted temple, wen tried to hint zhou that she loved him but zhou had no heart for her love proposal. Finally wen reached her house. Her uncle tried to arrange for marriage for zhou and wen but zhou refused the proposal. When wen heard of that, she hang herself.

The story end by wen ghost went to find Zhou. In the end, neither xiulan or Jing entered the plot again that i think is really stupid.

Today story: (27 /4/08) - Feng Huang Guan

Lee Yue Er was the daughter of a minster but she was vain from young and her only wish was to be married to a son of a senior officer, wearing a feng huang guan. Her father had proposed marriage to the Seng family. However, misfortune fall on the Seng whom was famed for corruption.
