Troupes from China's inland, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan will present their unique drama programs in a large drama festival scheduled in Macao in late November.
The 4th Chinese Drama Festival will be sponsored by the Cultural Institute of the Macao Special Administrative Region (SAR), the first such large drama activity for Macao.
In addition to performances from November 23 to 29, a symposium on drama science is also slated, said sources from a preparatory committee of the cultural institute.
The biennial event was first launched in Beijing in 1996 and then in Hong Kong and Taiwan, aiming to bolster the development of Chinese drama.
