    first performance

    He was the music director of the first performance for the Grand opening of MayTheater.

    He also took part in a lot of opera performance and TV shows as Artistic and Music Director.

    Are the above paragraphs grammatical?

    Thanks.

    You don't need to capitalize music director.

    Re: first performance

    That first sentence seems a little strange. The first performance of what? If it was something called, "The grand opening of May Theater" then "of" would be correct. This seems unlikely. It is probably referring to the first performance of any sort, at a place called May Theater, to mark its grand opening. In that case "for" would be fine.

    They're sentences, Ju—not paragraphs. Where did you find them?

    Is his identity a secret?

    Thanks.
    See above. And please put us out of our misery and tell us who he is!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I found it on a promotional leaflet introducing the Chinese musical director, Mr. Li for a Chinese Opera performance.
