Hong Kong’s outdoor Shakespeare festival is returning to Cyberport on 16 April. This year, the programme is more diverse and more inclusive to theatre lovers who speak languages other than English.

The mainstage productions this year are:

The Tempest
Follow the characters’ search for hope, love and peace in a play filled with aspiration. Through forgiveness and wisdom, the characters achieve their searches without killing or war.

The play begins with a rainstorm. Though fairies continuously creates deceptive scenes, they also manifests a romanticised love.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream
The course of true love never did run smooth, as fairies and humans alike find out one midsummer’s night. With a pinch of magic, comedy and confusion unfold. Perhaps love is nothing but blind, irrational and impulsive, or perhaps not. This one is by HKU Shax.
