During the 7th lunar month the cityscape of Singapore is lit by the brilliant lights of the getai, and its ancestor the opera stage. Appearing for only a few nights before disappearing, in their short presence they become the centre of attraction, drawing fans and audiences from all over. Any space can be the location of a getai. The structures serve different uses, some are the traditional Chinese opera stages, worship altar tents, auction tents, dining tents and the true getai. Here I document some of them, and their peculiar settings.
