Hong Kong Ballet kicks off its milestone 40th Anniversary Season with the Asian premiere of Septime Webre’s Peter Pan. The high-flying adventure to Neverland offers a fresh take on the classic tale and will transport audiences to a fantasy island of cheeky pirates, Indian princesses and naughty boys who don’t want to grow up.
Featuring extravagant costumes, spectacular sets and vibrant choreography that combines classical ballet, clever slapstick and a touch of hip hop, set to Carmon DeLeon’s original sweeping score which is performed live by Hong Kong Sinfonietta, this breathtaking production follows the Peter Pan through various hijinks with humour and heart.
Hong Kong Ballet are once again collaborating with Hysan Development and Lee Gardens Association on Ballet in Lee Gardens – Peter Pan, a series of interactive Peter Pan themed events including an exhibition, a workshop, a Fun Day, performances and a parade with Peter Pan’s favourite characters through the streets of Causeway Bay.
