description

在古巴首都夏灣拿(今稱哈瓦那)出生、自小學習粵劇的何秋蘭和黃美玉,既是獨生女兒、又是舞臺姐妹。何秋蘭的養父方標因爲家人反對他學戲而由廣東遠走古巴,黃美玉的中國父親則是華人街有名的裁縫。兩人生長在三、四十年代繁榮的夏灣拿,秋蘭以俏麗扮相和婉轉歌喉成爲紅遍古巴各個華埠的花旦,學習過功夫和舞獅的美玉則常常扮演小生角色。1959 年卡斯特羅的一場革命洗盡繁華夢幻,何秋蘭做了收銀員,黃美玉成爲外交官員。進入花甲之年後,在被時間磨蝕的華人街,兩人試圖重新排演粵劇,進入耄耋之年,竟開始了穿越大洋的粵劇之旅。

Caridad Amaran and Georgina Wong Gutierrez learned the art of Cantonese opera in the1930s in Havana. Caridad's mentor was her Chinese foster father, Julian Fong, who immigrated to Cuba in the 1920s after his family forbade him to perform opera. Georgina's father was a famous tailor in Havana Chinatown, who encouraged her to learn kung-fu and the lion dance. Though neither had any siblings, they formed a sisterhood on the stage. Through the 1940s, Caridad toured all over Cuba, performing in cities with Chinese communities as the leading actress of her opera troupe. Georgina quit opera to attend college, but her studies were interrupted by Castro's 1959 revolution and her required military service. Eventually, she went on to become a diplomat. Following their retirement, and well into their sixties, the two sisters began performing Cantonese opera again. In their eighties, they found a new audience in China.
