Founded in 1963, Nam Hwa Opera (NHO) upholds and carries forward the traditional Teochew culture, promotes the art form of Teochew Opera, and actively seeks breakthroughs in the field of
performing arts. NHO also boldly combines modern technology and multiculturalism to create works of art with a “Singaporean flavour”. For more than half a century, NHO has given hundreds of public performances which enrich traditional arts and culture. To further its mission to preserve and promote Teochew Opera, NHO became Nam Hwa Opera Limited in February 2015 and a registered charity. In 2020, NHO was conferred with the inaugural award “The Stewards of Intangible Cultural Heritage Award” by Singapore National Heritage Board.
