Royal New Zealand Ballet, Hong Kong 2016
Oct 2016 - Oct 2016

Introduction

As part of the ongoing celebrations of Shakespeare’s 400th anniversary, the Royal New Zealand Ballet makes an exclusive appearance in Hong Kong with its much-lauded production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Originally premiered in New Zealand in 2015, and hailed as “sparkling, 110% magic” by the national press, this new version of an effervescent story was created by the young British choreographer Liam Scarlett in partnership with the leading New Zealand stage designer Tracy Grant Lord.  For the work’s Asian premiere performances at Sha Tin Town Hall, the Royal New Zealand Ballet is thrilled to be joined by the Hong Kong Sinfonietta, playing Mendelssohn’s magnificent score live under the baton of Nigel Gaynor.
