One of the world’s most popular musicals is coming to Hong Kong’s Academy for Performing Arts. West Side Story revolves around the rivalry between two teenage gangs, the Jets and the Sharks.
It’s a modern adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, and its theme is just as relevant today as it was 60 years ago when the musical opened on Broadway.
The international cast will enthrall the audience with lively dance routines and classic songs such as Maria, Tonight, Somewhere, America and I Feel Pretty.

Venue: The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, Lyric Theatre

Dragon Boat Carnival

The Dragon Boat Carnival is one of the main events on Hong Kong’s social calendar. The three-day event at Victoria Harbour features dragon boat racing, entertainment and a BeerFest. In true Hong Kong fashion, it is more of a party than a sporting event.

Transformers: The Last Knight

The latest installment in the wildly popular and outrageously over-the-top Transformers franchise sees the return of Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager.
The movie is set in a time when humans are at war with the Transformers. Wahlberg joins up with Anthony Hopkins, who plays Sir Edmund Burton, in an attempt to save the day by uncovering the hidden history of the Transformers on Earth.
The film is directed by Michael Bay, so expect jaw-dropping stunts, a lot of CGI and explosions.
