The 50th Hong Kong Arts Festival kicks off in late February in a slightly scaled down form compared to usual.
This five-week festival is one of the biggest art events in Hong Kong, attracting an impressive lineup of artists, ballet troupes, orchestras, dancers, conductors, pianists, and singers, although there will be no international component this year thanks to COVID-19.
There will be a number of specially commissioned works for the festival including a play called “The Plague” which has both Cantonese and English versions.
In addition to the in-person shows and performances, there will be online programmes along with various peripheral events such as educational sessions and workshops.
Regardless of whether you like live theatre, Western opera, classical piano or modern dance, the Hong Kong Arts Festival has a wide range of programs to choose from and enjoy.
Performances take place at various venues, including the Hong Kong Cultural Center in Tsim Sha Tsui, and the Hong Kong City Hall Theatre in Central.
