The Hong Kong Ballet Summer Delights

Date: June 4
Time: 7:15pm
Venue: Oriental Opera Hall, Shanghai Oriental Art Center

A trilogy of modern ballet works, Summer Delights brings together a programme of diverse dance pieces.

Choreographer Yuri Ng’s Firecracker transforms his revisioning of the traditional festive fantasy The Nutcracker into a Hong Kong experience. Beginning in the late 1960s, the work speeds forward through events and fragments of memories, much like watching old Cantonese films trailers. An excerpt from Firecracker will be presented.

William Forsythe is known as one of the world’s foremost choreographers. Steptext is Forsythe’s stylised play on ballet technique, pushing dancers through space as their bodies challenge an astonishing interplay of human forms and movements.

Krzysztof Pastor’s In Light and Shadow blends the Baroque spirit and music of Bach with the modern ballet form. The ballet takes the elements of light and shadow, transforming them into sleek, dramatic shapes and dance rhythms. Filled with colours and a sense of flight, the work creates a lush tapestry of the senses.
