Li Chixiang (???) is a Cantonese opera performer from Guangdong who has traveled the world performing and singing and the host of two opera-themed shows on Guangdong Southern TV. Since she began performing opera at age 11, while she was enrolled at the Guangdong Cantonese Opera School, she has won multiple awards and has even been selected to perform at the CCTV Spring Festival Gala, the most widely viewed TV show in the world by some estimates.

She is an excellent authority to give foreigners a little deeper understanding of Cantonese opera and the life of an opera actress.
