Two of Hong Kong's Flagship Performing Arts Organisations. Team Up for An Unforgettable Evening of Music and Dance
Hong Kong Ballet and the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra (HK Phil) present an exciting world premiere of The Last Song by HKB’s Choreographer-in-Residence Hu Song Wei Ricky and Septime Webre’s powerful dance masterpiece Carmina Burana.
Inspired by selections by J.S. Bach and Oscar Wilde’s The Nightingale and the Rose, Hu created his new work The Last Song, which features solos by HK Phil Concertmaster Jing Wang and Principal Cello Richard Bamping. Carl Orff’s iconic Carmina Burana is a commanding interpretation of 24 medieval poems. With dances from medieval times to the present, Webre’s choreography is influenced by Orff’s bombastic music and by themes from Virginia Woolf’s novella Orlando about our eternal search for love. Striking eight-metre scaffolding surrounding the stage holds over 100 members combined HK Phil Chorus and The Hong Kong Children’s Choir, who are joined by soloists soprano Vivian Yau, tenor Ren Shengzhi and baritone Liu Tao.
Under the baton of HK Phil Resident Conductor Lio Kuokman, this epic double bill programme uniquely brings the acclaimed dancers of HKB and the world-class musicians of the HK Phil together for a celebration of culture and artistry combining riveting music with visually arresting dance.
