The Hong Kong Arts Festival

The Hong Kong Arts Festival returns for its 51st iteration this month. Each and every year the festival manages to cram in an astonishing array of performances, typically ranging from much-loved classical favourites to more outré, experimental productions. In addition to its active programme of international features, the Festival also commissions and produces theatre, chamber opera and contemporary dance performances by Hong Kong’s own creative talents. The festival also offers a diverse range of supporting and educational activities.
