Cul­tural feast

Asian pre­mieres and ac­claimed clas­sics pop­u­late a vi­brant Arts Fes­ti­val pro­gramme

Hong Kong Tatler - - Concierge -

pen­ing with Sascha Goet­zel and the Boru­san Is­tan­bul Phil­har­monic Orchestra, the Hong Kong Arts Fes­ti­val presents a packed pro­gramme of dance, mu­sic, the­atre and opera, an ex­trav­a­ganza that will keep the city buzzing un­til March 18. Look out for the volup­tuous per­for­mances of Les Bal­lets Jazz de Mon­treal, an ex­hil­a­rat­ing Cana­dian dance com­pany famed for “jazz­ing up” bal­let clas­sics. On the mu­sic front, Gains­bourg Sym­phonic is a trib­ute to the leg­endary Serge Gains­bourg by his muse and part­ner Jane Birkin. The Shang­hai Zhang Jun Kunqu Art Cen­tre’s opera Blossoms on a Spring Moon­light Night brings the el­e­gance of clas­si­cal China into the con­tem­po­rary, and Su­per Pool, a free-for-all com­put­erised play­ground by in­ter­ac­tive me­dia artist Jen Lewin, is a glimpse into the fu­ture of play.
