Grounded on core values of respect, love, and service to the elderly, the Xin Yue Senior Citizen Service Center of Chongqing, China, promotes social work services for senior citizens and builds harmonious living environment for them.
This month, actors from Zhongyuan Opera Troupe put on a spectacular performance of Beijing Opera. They arrived early in the morning, preparing elaborate make up and costumes. The atmosphere at the center today was buzzing with excitement.
Elderly in China tend to be very enthused in traditional arts, especially Beijing-style Opera. Many of our seniors came to the play room early. It was a full house! People were standing outside the doorway, watching. The opera was a comedy so it left everyone in a lovely mood. They gave warm applauses to each performance. These were classics, so some of them could not help singing along with the actors. This was definitely a hit show and we will be inviting the Zhongyuan Opera Troupe back soon!
