WHAT The Academy Ball 2017 WHEN De­cem­ber 9, 2017 WHERE Hong Kong Academy for Per­form­ing Arts

Hong Kong Tatler Society - - Top10 Parties Of The Year -

In keep­ing with the theme of the Academy Ball, #LikeInAMovie, back­drops con­jur­ing the sets of var­i­ous movies trans­formed the cock­tail space at the Lyric Theatre, pro­vid­ing an ir­re­sistible lure for the selfie-shoot­ers among the more than 400 guests. The ball, or­gan­ised by the So­ci­ety of the Academy for Per­form­ing Arts and with Jaeger-LeCoul­tre as ti­tle spon­sor for the third con­sec­u­tive year, raised more than HK$10 mil­lion, a new record, to sup­port schol­ar­ship pro­grammes for stu­dents across the academy’s six art schools. Of course, as well as a sump­tu­ous din­ner, the guests en­joyed plenty of en­ter­tain­ment by academy stu­dents dur­ing the evening. The per­for­mances kicked off with a med­ley by stu­dents from the academy and the Ma­cau Con­ser­va­tory that in­cor­po­rated num­bers from the mu­si­cals Beauty and the Beast, Chicago and Singing in the Rain. A live auc­tion saw 13 lots rang­ing from timepieces do­nated by Jaeger-LeCoul­tre and art­works do­nated by Poly Auc­tion go un­der the ham­mer.
