An actor performs during a Cantonese Opera in Hong Kong on February 12, 2013 as part of the Chinese New Year celebrations held in the city. Other than its southern dialect, Cantonese opera differs from mainland operatic traditions in its use of percussion instruments like gongs and cymbals. Actors wear elaborate costumes and make-up, and must be adept at elaborately choreographed martial arts as well as singing.
