\"Huayi\" festival kicks off at Esplanade

SINGAPORE : The annual Chinese Festival of Arts, "Huayi", has returned to the Esplanade to welcome the Year of the Rabbit. The 10-day festival kicked off on Friday evening with some free performances. And it was a rousing start as visitors were treated to a performance by the Wen Yang lion dance troupe. Others also got a chance to participate in a sing-along session, featuring evergreen Mandarin songs. Organisers said this year's festival aims to showcase fresh perspectives of the different Chinese art forms - from dance to theatre. Other highlights include a concert by local songbird Kit Chan, who is returning to the festival after a six-year hiatus. This year marks the ninth run of the festival.
