For the third year running, workers will erect a gorgeous 800-seat temporary theater out of wood for the Bamboo Theatre—the annual three-week series of performances of Cantonese opera, Chinese dance and contemporary music. This year's iteration will open with the timeless classic works of the world-renowned Plum Blossom Award Art Troupe of Chinese Theatre Association, who present four nights of excerpt performances in various theatrical genres including Jingju, Kunju, Yueju and mixed Xiqu. New to the program is the “Rising Stars in Cantonese Opera Showcase”, classic Chinese opera movie screenings, and an exhibition to preview the under-construction Xiqu Centre which will be opera's new home. Never a better time to catch this traditional art form!

It brings together 23 different instruments (highlights: definitely the glass harp and handbell) and a full range of dance styles, from hip hop to shuffle to latin dance. Where does the wedding come in? Presumably in the marriage of handbell with hip hop. Reserve your free spot at 6:30pm...

Part of the LCSD's "Boundless Multimedia" series, director and composer Steve Hui (aka Nerve) has put together a mindblowing multisensory opera show designed by artist Nadim Abbas, featuring a massive screen that transmits music, images and video alongside the cast on stage. 2+2=5? Maybe you'll think so too after you see it.

Due to disruption by the typhoon last month, the English Speaking Union have rescheduled this play-reading session. Shih-I Hsiung's 1935 play "Lady Precious Stream" was the first West End play ever written by a Chinese person. It's a Chinese-style play written in English, about a faithful wife who waits for her adventurer husband. It grew so popular that it was eventually adapted for film (1938) and television (1950). The session will be held at Colette's, upstairs at...

The Boundless Multimedia series goes full force with the last show of the series, which is the 15th production by Hong Kong writers Peter Suart and Kung Chi-sing's "The Box" theater, which folds in live performed music, projected images and acting. This time, "The World was Made on a Sunday" looks at Vladimir Nabokov, Dimitri Shostakovich and Josef Stalin around the time of the Bolshevik revolution. Based partly on Nabokov's autobiography "Speak, Memory,...
