“The Love and Death of the Palace” is a famous Cantonese opera. The lyric goes, ‘Vanity has ruined my life and has made me weep.... Please don't feel despaired, one day the spring wind of love will blow again.’ Until then the couple is pulled apart. Now all the girl can do is row a boat, and sing melancholic songs to her lone self.
