Support for the Development of Cantonese Opera
Cantonese opera is an emblem of our local culture. For the preservation, promotion and development of Cantonese opera, the Yau Ma Tei Theatre and the Red Brick Building, both graded historic buildings, have been revitalised as a territory-wide performing arts venue named Yau Ma Tei Theatre. It was officially opened on 17 July 2012, designated for promoting Chinese opera activities, in particular Cantonese opera. The venue is equipped with performing and rehearsal facilities to encourage and support the budding and upcoming Cantonese opera troupes. Through the implementation of the Venue Partnership Scheme, it helps promote the venue as a popular training and performing venue as well as cradle for nurturing Cantonese opera talents.

Yau Ma Tei Theatre
Yau Ma Tei Theatre provides a 300-seat auditorium, a stage with an orchestra pit, a dressing room, a sound and lighting control room, a foyer and a box office. Together with the function rooms in the Red Brick Building, it is suitable for holding Chinese opera performances and related activities.

The Yau Ma Tei Theatre is easily accessible by the general public. It can be reached via MTR Yau Ma Tei Station Exit B2 and public transportation routes through main traffic roads in Kowloon. It is about a 5 minutes’ walk from the MTR Yau Ma Tei Station and public transport stops on Nathan Road.
