In view of the reopening of performing venues on 19 February, the Hong Kong Arts Festival announces changes to in-venue programmes. Please visit this page for details.

The Hong Kong Arts Festival is a non-profit organization. We need your support to continue commissioning innovative and daring new creations!

The Festival is committed to promoting original works, and has commissioned and produced many critically acclaimed productions in the past, such as:
  • Always by Your Side (2019)
  • Gangsters of Hong Kong (2019)
  • The Great Learning, Doctrine of Happiness (2018)
  • A Floating Family – A Trilogy (2017)
  • Chinese Lesson (2016)
  • Danz Up (2016)
  • Datong - The Chinese Utopia (2015)
  • The Amahs (2015)
  • Red Chamber in the Concrete Forest (2014)
  • Heart of Coral – A chamber opera after the life of Xiao Hong (2013)
  • Blast (2013)
  • Wild Boar (2012)
  • Murder In San Jose (2011)
  • An Ordinary Man (2011)
  • The Truth About Lying (2010)

Without our donors' generous support, it would be difficult to commission so many new works. To support the nurturing of creative talent in Hong Kong, please support the New Works Scheme.
