Forty Years of Cherished Love

The Cantonese opera Forty Years of Cherished Love was written by the mainland librettist, Chen Guanqing (1920–2003). Premiered in 1984 in Guangzhou with the renowned veteran actors, Luo Jiabao (1930–2016) and Bai Xuehong, it was taken on tour to Hong Kong and the US and established a popular following. After numerous stagings over the past three decades, it has become a classic in the Cantonese opera repertory.
