Lok Kok Tai Fong Seong [The Inauguration of the Prime Minister ]
Excerpt from Tai Loi Fah [ Princess Cheung Ping ]
Excerpt from Fong Kok Yan Sau [ Romance of the Phoenix Chamber]
Lok Kok Tai Fong Seong is traditionally staged as a precursor of the Cantonese Opera season to show case the strength of the troupe in numerical terms, the splendour of the costumes and basic mime.
Su Chin had brilliantly warded off the attacks of Qin Shih Wang Ti during the era of the warring states by uniting the six kingdoms. The six kingdoms lavished him and his family with honours and wealth by inviting him to be the Prime Minister.
战国时代，苏秦聪彗地游说到魏、赵、韩、齐、楚和燕 ，六国都接受他" 六纵" 抗秦的主张，既是六国联盟起来，成功地制止了秦始皇对他们发动的战争。於是六国诸侯奖赏苏秦与家人财富并委苏秦做六国的宰相，成了一个显赫的人物。
Tai Loi Fah is a story of profound nobility. Princess Cheung Ping of the Ming Dynasty made a pact with her consort to commit suicide instead of her being a political tool to placate the Qing conquerors.
Fong Kok Yan Sau recounts a story of love unfulfilled. Princess Hong Luen in her youth was given to the Mongols as a hostage. While growing up, she fell in love with Mongolian General Kuan Hong, but they had to part as she had to return to China never to see her lover again.
