Hong Kong this November: Marco Polo Bierfest, Thriller Live and Secret Theatre
November in Hong Kong is going to be a good one, especially if you’re into art and culture. We’ve got a number of events that you’ll definitely want to check out!
12 November | Marco Polo German Bierfest
Get ready to drink your weight in beer as the Marco Polo German Bierfest returns this year for the 25th iteration, bringing the German tradition to town at the Marco Polo Hongkong Hotel.
Guzzle down delicious brews from prestigious beer brand sponsor Erdinger while feasting on scrummy German bites, dancing to live DJs and indulging in raucous merrymaking against the beautiful backdrop of Victoria Harbour. A special visit from seven-member German band The Notenhoblers is scheduled to headline the festival’s performance lineup.
Tickets are $160-180 and are available from HK Ticketing
13 November | Thriller Live
Buckle up for a night of adrenaline-pumping music from the King of Pop at the newly opened Parisian Macao.
Thriller Live is a West End hit that’s made its way to our fair shores in its ninth year running, with its first debut just a few month’s before Michael Jackson’s passing. In this 90-minute show, you’ll be immersed in the magic of Michael’s dance and choreography, with the familiar tunes performed in a heart-pumping spectacular show that will have you up and out of your seat all night long.
Tickets are $180-450 and can be purchased from Cotai Ticketing.
Through 20 November | New Vision Arts Festival 2016
This biennial festival celebrates a brilliant array of musical, dance and multimedia productions, showcased at a variety of theaters and performance halls around town.
Aiming to be a cross-section for artistic and cultural talents and insights, the month-long festival looks to the future, using the event as a creative platform to launch an array of dynamic and forward-thinking performances. Catch the dance opera Matsukaze which masterfully weaves elements of Noh drama, Western opera and contemporary dance; and the Greek tragedy Prometheus Bound, re-envisioned as a comedy by influential theater director Li Liuyi.
Performances are held at various locations and so jump onto the event’s official website to see the festival’s performance schedule and ticketing information.
Ongoing | Secret Theatre
The successful Secret Theatre project is back again this year, staging another wild and interactive performance and play in one at a hidden location around town.
Last year saw audience members embark on a boat to a mysterious mansion on Lamma Island where they were caught up in the midst of a murder mystery based on the seven deadly sins, and we can only imagine what this year has in store. Expect the unexpected, and come prepared with proper footwear and cameras ready.
We can’t reveal where the project will be held because we don’t even know ourselves! The location will be stated on your ticket!
Tickets are $988 and can be purchased via Ticket Flap website out.
Ongoing | The World of Tim Burton
Dark and mysterious creatures await at the Tim Burton exhibition, featuring over 500 artworks dedicated to the eccentric, renowned director Tim Burton.
Step deep into the fantastical world of the esteemed moviemaker in this quirky multimedia exhibition, which includes everything from original sketches to paintings and puppets portraying the undead. You’ll be able to follow Burton’s career from childhood to adulthood as you find yourself lost in his imagination, dominated by the interplay between humor and horror motifs.
