Tang Ti-sheng (Chinese: 唐滌生; pinyin: Táng Díshēng) (June 18, 1917 - September 15, 1959), born Tang Kang-nien (Chinese: 唐康年; pinyin: Táng Kāngnián), was a Cantonese opera playwright, scriptwriter, and film director. His contributions to Cantonese opera significantly influenced Hong Kong's reform and development of the genre beginning in the late 1930s. During his twenty-year career, Tang composed over 400 operas and achieved immense popularity within the Cantonese opera scene. He also wrote the film scripts adapted from his own operas, directed the movies and at times acted in them himself. A few of his most famous works include Bird at Sunset (落霞孤騖 cantonese: laai6 haa4 gu1 mou6), Red Tears of an Aspen (白楊紅淚 baak6 joeng4 gung1 leoi6), Sweet Dreams (花都綺夢 faa1 dou1 ji2 mung6), and his last piece The Reincarnation of Lady Plum Blossom (再世紅梅記 zoi3 sai3 gung1 mui4 gei3).
