Chinese Opera -- Declining?

My mom was watching cable TV when there was a feature on the Chinese opera. I actually do not enjoy it as much as other people do, but I could see how it is a beautiful part of the Chinese culture. In the days before movies and TV, these are what people line up for. My mother told me that my grandmother (her mother) was a great fan and would try to watch as many of those as she can, much like how baseball fans try to get New York Yankees tickets as soon as they come out. The young Chinese (like me, unfortunately) do not appreciate this art anymore and would rather watch concerts and soaps on TV, maybe because we no longer see it. This is sad. We should still recognize this as a valuable part of our heritage.
