The crowd at an Esplanade's Moonfest event last Saturday (Sept 30) broke into smiles when three westerners joined local actors in an Teochew opera performance. Australian Prudence Roberts, a writer, who acted occasionally with Lao Sai Thor troupe because of her interest in the art form, received applause when she uttered lines in Teochew from a classic opera, Reunion at the Capital. She and another two expats, a Finnish man and a Russian woman, had earlier performed in another popular show, Six Kingdoms Appoint a Prime Minister.
