Trump on Show, a Cantonese opera

https://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-asia-china-47910072/the-all-singing-all-dancing-chinese-trump-opera

The all-singing, all-dancing Chinese Trump opera:

Donald Trump has a long-lost twin brother in south-western China.

That's the plot of Trump on Show, a Cantonese opera inspired by the 45th president of the United States that opened in Hong Kong on Friday.

Cantonese opera is a 500-year-old art form originating in southern China.

Here's one opera Frank was a fan of:

"The Devils Of Loudon: Krzysztof Penderecki. Because it’s also an extremely well-produced album and I think it’s an excellent piece of dramatic music. And also because Tatiana Troyanos who plays the main nun sounds absolutely marvellous during the enema scene. The story is about a hunch-backed nun who’s possessed by the Devil and has to have an exorcism. The exorcism involves the nun being given a hot herbal enema. In live performance the exorcism takes place behind a screen and you hear Tatiana singing and screeching whilst an orchestra plays enema music. You also hear the Devil chuckling from inside the nun’s bowel."

I don't much care for the tenors or sopranos or even basses. I enjoy a choir singing a well written melody. Orchestra with choir is fine too. I guess the length also matters. I rarely listen to works more than 30 min long.
Mozart, I only listen to a few pieces that were vocal, now scored for winds only.
