Uncover the Beauty of Chinese Culture

Who We Are

Established in 2005, Tang Renaissance is an IPC arts charity registered in Singapore presenting Shanghai Yue Opera performances. 

Our mission is to accelerate the learning and appreciation of Chinese culture by embracing multiculturalism and fostering cross-disciplinary collaborations through Yue Opera, one of the most progressive forms of Chinese Opera.

The distinguishing feature of Shanghai Yue Opera is its lyrical and poetic style, which incorporates all five aspects of stage production - scriptwriting, directing, performance, music and design. As a performing art, it is a good marriage of abstraction and realism. Chinese classical literature and history passed down generations through folklores form the basis of its repertoire. There are also elements of day-to-day living about it.

In performance, it appeals to the audience with its elegance, sensitive yet earthy rendering. It has its roots in the life of the people without losing the successful formula of operatic music. The vocal style is lyrical, expressive, appealing to the ear and touching to the heart. The scenery and props, costumes, and creation of stage personae are very much in Chinese painting tradition. The visual appeal is obvious: tasteful, colourful and invites imagination. This opera's genre is like a rare and fragrant bloom from the Chinese opera garden where hundreds of species grow and thrive.


越剧,目前为中国第二大戏曲剧种。 上海越剧独特的魅力在于它的歌词如诗,曲调婉转柔美。作为一门表演艺术,它完美的结合了抽象与现实,融合了舞台制作的五大元素 - 编剧、导演、表演、音乐和美术设计。剧目灵感大多来自中国文学与历史,世代相传的民间传说。近代的剧目也加入了不少日常生活的元素。

Tang Renaissance became a registered arts charity in May 2017 after nearly 20 years of promoting the traditional art form of Shanghai Yue Opera. We aim to be an ambassador for Shanghai Yue Opera in Singapore and to provide a platform for practitioners to hone their craft. We collaborate with groups overseas for cross-fertilization of ideas, talents and sharing of intellectual properties. Every year, we aim to produce a new show under the series "Shanghai Yue Opera Appreciation Night" which will be staged in a local theatre. We also seek opportunities for cultural exchange events overseas and be part of an international network that shares ideas, knowledge and connections to make a larger impact on our community through the arts.
