Hong Kong Arts Festival

Three to four weeks over February and March
This annual celebration of the arts in Hong Kong has been held since 1972. Artists from around the world appear for a diverse program that includes opera, orchestral concerts, chamber music, jazz, dance, film, theater, and exhibits. The 1992 program scheduled a presentation of the opera Tosca with an international cast, as well as a performance of the 400-year-old Kunju Opera, the oldest surviving form of theater in China, by the Shanghai Kunju Opera Troupe. The 2001 schedule included a production of a full-length Cantonese opera based on the classic novel The Romance of the Three Kingdoms, a performance by Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble, and a Lithuanian production of Hamlet .
