For more than 100 years, it has been said that Master Hua Guang is the patron saint of Cantonese opera. The founder of Huaguang is commonly known as Ma Lingyao, also called Lingguan Marshal Ma and Three Eye Lingguang. It is said that because he controlled the fire and protected the Cantonese opera troupes, the children of Bahe and other Cantonese opera workers at home and abroad respected Emperor Hua Guang as their founder. It is said that the 28th day of the ninth month of the lunar calendar is the birthday of the founder of Huaguang. Therefore, on this auspicious day, the Cantonese Opera troupe holds a feast to celebrate.
