In appreciation of the generous donation from Dr. Pak Suet Sin and the Yam Pak Charitable Foundation, and to celebrate Dr. Pak’s 90th birthday, The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Library presents the exhibition ‘Unveiling the Splendor of the Flower Princess: An Exhibition from CUHK Library’s Yam Pak Collection in Honour of Dr. Pak Suet Sin’s 90 Years’ from 14 May till 31 July 2017.  Members of the public are welcome.  Admission is free.

The exhibition showcases the Library’s invaluable collection of the Sin Fung Ming Troupe’s libretti, stage stills and other photos, among which the Troupe’s clay-print libretti are the most valuable treasures. Usually, no more than a dozen copies of the clay-print libretti were made and were accessible only to principal performers, the percussionist, and the stage instructor. They are the relics of the playwrights’ original ideation, glinting with their great creativity. Another set of treasures is the Troupe’s stage stills which perpetuate the glamour of the stage and the glory of its actors and actresses.

The exhibition offers an opportunity for visitors to follow the steps of the Sin Fung Ming Troupe, along the path of Hong Kong Cantonese opera’s development.
