Opera Singer.
Luo Pinchao was a Cantonese opera singer. In 1930 he joined the Cantonese Opera, which is a traditional Chinese theatre and is in the southern dialect. Lou Pinchao continued to regularly perform Cantonese opera and was famous for singing for half an hour with one foot raised and wrapped around a prop. He helped modernize the art form by using scripts written in colloquial instead of classical Chinese. On June 20, 2004 he celebrated his 93rd birthday by a performance at the Guandong Cantonese Opera Grand Artistic Theatre, Guangzhou, China. This performance broke the record for a performance of the oldest Opera singer. He was ranked in the Guiness Book for World Records as the oldest Opera performer. He passed away at his home in Guangzhou, China on July 15, 2010.
