The third edition of the "Legends of Lion Dance" exhibition will be even bigger and better in 2019.  The exhibition, which tells the stories and traditions associated with Chinese New Year, such as the famous Lion Dance, will include additional exhibits this year, with more stunning lion heads, made and embroidered in Hong Kong according to traditional techniques handed down the generations.

There will be Chinese musical instruments, information about the Chinese horoscope, and a focus on Chinese opera on the occasion of the opening of the new Xiqu Centre in Hong Kong.  The Xiqu Centre, a venue for performances of Cantonese opera, is one of the theatres in Hong Kong's mega cultural district project, the West Kowloon Cultural District.
