A Ballet Soiree showcases six different ballet pieces by choreographers from around the world, and stars international prima ballerina Tan Yuan Yuan with Vito Mazzeo from the San Francisco Ballet alongside Hong Kong Ballet regulars Jin Yao, Wu Fei fei, Wu Yan, Zhang Yao and more. Tan will star in a Pas de Deux from Symphonic Dances set to the music of Sergei Rachmaninov.
I've sat in a rehearsal with Tan Yuan Yuan when I interviewed her years ago, and though I'm something of a neophyte when it comes to matters of dance, the way this girl moves and performs is absolutely breathtaking. The ballet isn't always on the top of the agenda for most of us, so this is a nice opportunity to see what is probably the Hong Kong Ballet's top shows for the year.
Performance Date and Time: 3 November (Saturday), 2:30pm
Venue: Grand Theatre, Hong Kong Cultural Centre
Tickets: 2 adult tickets
Method of delivery: Mailed to address provided by giveaway contestant.
