Located in Foshan Chancheng, it houses the largest Cantonese opera museum in China, the Guangdong Cantonese Opera Museum.
Cantonese opera is one of the traditional operas in Guangdong. The "chao hang" at the beginning of the opera is enough to make people fascinated. Compared with the current pop songs, Cantonese opera sings history, listens to feelings, and is accompanied by several generations. The soul mate of man was included in the national intangible cultural heritage in 2006, and what is the basis for Foshan as the birthplace of Cantonese opera?
Canton Opera has "No Eight Harmony, First Jiqing, No Jiqing, First Qionghua", among which "Qionhua" refers to Foshan "Qionhua Club", which was built in the middle of the Ming Dynasty. It was the earliest Cantonese opera industry organization. Its establishment is enough to show that Foshan was the center of Cantonese opera development at that time. If you don't know the Qionghua Guild Hall, then the name of "Li Wenmao" must have been heard. He was an artist in the troupe during the Qing Dynasty. He and the leader of the Heaven and Earth Society Chen Kaihe held the righteous flag and led the Cantonese drama uprising against Manchu, which is the history of world drama. A feat.
