With all my HKAF colleagues, I have great pleasure presenting selected highlights of the coming Festival.
This year, women take pride of place. They are in the narratives and characters on stage, from Miss Elizabeth Bennet to The Amahs; in all women ensembles from the Zhejiang Xiaobaihua Yueju Opera Troupe to the Barefoot Divas of the Pacific Islands; and in the constellation of stellar performers to grace this Festival. Not that we are shutting out the other half of humanity! We are proud to present three of the world’s most remarkable Maestros, leading the Bolshoi, the Dresden Staatskapelle and the LA Philharmonic, as well as fabulous Classical and Jazz musicians of both genders. In addition, there is a raft of programmes for young audiences to enjoy with the whole family: gorgeous, exciting, and funky work which we hope you will find entertaining as well as thought provoking.
Do spend a little time perusing the website. Full programme details and advance bookings will be offered in October 2014. Be sure to book early for the best available seats. I look forward to seeing you at the Festival.
