PAD01 | Rehearsal of The Nutcracker (excerpts) by Hong Kong Ballet


This Christmas returning with Septime Webre’s presented The Nutcracker, set in the early 20th century Hong Kong, follows young Clara on a fantasy adventure when one of her Christmas presents, a magical Nutcracker, comes to life.  A glorious feast for the eyes and ears, this nostalgic extravaganza features a riveting fusion of local historical characters, charming wildlife and shared Hong Kong traditions, set to Tchaikovsky’s beloved iconic score with Gabriela Tylesova’s luxuriously detailed sets and costumes.  Don’t miss the hypnotic Waltz of the Bauhinia Flowers, the whimsical Mother Dim Sum and her dancing Dim Sum Clowns or the lively Cheung Chau Bun Festival!  A special classic for our city and the festive event of the year, The Nutcracker eloquently showcases the diversity and splendour of Hong Kong and will enchant all audiences.

One of Asia’s premier ballet companies, Hong Kong Ballet (HKB) is internationally recognised as a vibrant arts institution that represents Hong Kong’s unique character.  Established in 1979 and led by Artistic Director Septime Webre, HKB has a dynamic repertoire performed by nearly 50 dancers from all over the globe and award-winning education and community programmes.

The programme is offered by the arts group in support of the "New to the Theatre: School Culture Day Scheme 2022/23".
