May 16, 2019

Although it may feature three adorably charming old ladies, Hong Kong Ballet’s effervescent 40th anniversary season promo video proves that it’s not your grandmother’s ballet company.

As dancers clad in neon and pastel ensembles absolutely slay artistic director Septime Webre’s eclectic, powerful choreo, you can’t help but marvel at how whimsically the old and new collide. (There’s also a stunning view of Hong Kong Harbor, and a cameo by a giant magenta lion!) It’s clear that Webre, formerly of the Washington Ballet, is bringing his signature flair to the company’s 40th anniversary season. Watch the full vid below!
