Ballet, Chinese Music

This special performance is an art collaboration between the internationally revered ballerina Ms. Emi Hariyama and internationally renowned pianist Ms. Nancy Loo.

Cultural exchange is the main theme of this performance – not only between Japanese and local Hong Kong musicians but the East-West artistic convergence, with western ballet and Chinese music. Apart from Emi and Nancy, members from Newtune Chinese orchestras and Mr. TK Tan, Senior Programme Director of HKU SPACE, will also perform in this concert.
