Sally Low Moon Chin 劉滿鑽
Sally’s first step into Cantonese opera was in 1977. She has been actively involved in Cantonese opera since then. Her first opera teacher was the well-known Joanna Wong. Another teacher is the renowned Chan Siu Hong. Sally does not confine herself to a single role. She believes in acting out different roles with divergent characters including villainous and comical roles.
In the earlier years she was the lead huadan in Kong Chow Wui Kun’s Opera Troupe. She performed her first lead role in 1985 and since then she has performed numerous operas and partnered innumerable artistes.
Since the 90s Sally has also been attempting script-writing. She has written several short opera scripts and adaptations with considerable success. She went to Guangzhou to visit the well-known Cantonese opera script-writer Chan Koon Heng and obtained invaluable advice on script-writing from him.
She is also a founder of the Chinese Cultural Arts Centre, an organization promoting Chinese opera. The CCAC has presented several full-length operas in which She and Gary Kong played the lead roles.
