Event: A sneak peek visit to HK Ballets’s contemporary Romeo and Juliet

Date: September 1st

Time: 6.15pm - 8pm

Epic and tragic. A love story set in Hong Kong in 1960s

A thought-provoking retelling in Septime Webre’s new Romeo + Juliet. Set in 1960s Hong Kong, with Wong Kar-wai’s renowned film, In the Mood for Love, as an inspiration for its designs and with details of mid-Twentieth Century Hong Kong street life, this epic love story captivates with vivid dancing, complex drama, brilliant martial arts, sumptuous cheongsams and iconic scenes from the tragic tale. With Webre’s original choreography accompanied by Prokofiev’s dramatic score, this brilliantly imagined adaptation is especially relevant for contemporary audiences as it fuses dance and drama against a backdrop of complicated politics and social upheaval.

We will be privileged to watch a private rehearsal of the company in a rehearsal studio at the Cultural Centre

6.15pm - Registration

6:30pm - Septime Webre, the Creative director of the HK Ballet, will talk to us about the inspiration for this new rendition. Followed by a Q&A
