Hong Kong Sinfonietta will provide live accompaniment to Hong Kong Ballet’s select performances of The Nutcracker under the baton of Vivian Ip.

‘Tis the season of whirling white snowflakes, visions of dancing sugar plums, waltzing bauhinia flowers and endless glittering tutus! Septime Webre’s The Nutcracker returns to bring festive cheer this December in a fantastical celebration of Hong Kong in the early 20th century, as the much-anticipated annual festive extravaganza! The Christmas Eve adventure begins at a lively party in an opulent gilded mansion where young Clara receives a special Nutcracker as a gift.

With scores of lavish costumes and an extraordinary setting, this wondrous world finds Clara and the Nutcracker on a magical journey, battling the evil Rat King’s army, travelling through a majestic bamboo forest covered in snow, encountering lively, memorable characters and the wondrous beauty of local flora and fauna, history and traditions. Experience the splendour and spectacle of this endearing annual Hong Kong classic celebrating the joy of the holidays with your loved ones!

The APPRECIATE concerts are, mainly, classical concerts featuring guest artists and conductors of world renown.  Apart from performing orchestral masterpieces, Hong Kong Sinfonietta regularly commissions new works and introduces to audiences works that are rarely heard in Hong Kong.

Music is good for everyone! The LEARN series takes audiences aged 0 to 88 into the world of classical music through specially designed concert series including Good Music for Babies, Good Music for Kids, Short-cut to Classical Music, Know Your Classical Music and HKS McDull Music Project.

In the light-hearted RELAX concerts, Hong Kong Sinfonietta shares with audiences great music ranging from orchestral favourites to music from movies and musicals.

The ENCOUNTER series offers unique opportunities for audiences to get close to the music and the performers through chamber music concerts, talks, often at unconventional venues or time. These include Good Music This Lunch, Good Music @ The Fringe, Beyond Good Music @ The Fringe, HKS ArtisTree Residency and UpClose Encounters.

Often referred to as “one of the world’s great small orchestras”, Hong Kong Sinfonietta has been invited to go on many TOURS in Europe, Asia, South and North Americas, sharing good music with audiences in over 30 cities.  In 2017/2018, the orchestra will make its début in Germany and perform at festivals in France, Portugal, as well as the Beethoven Easter Festival in Poland.

WHAT ELSE?  Apart from classical concerts, Hong Kong Sinfonietta regularly appears in staged productions by Hong Kong Ballet, Opera Hong Kong and visiting arts groups such as The Royal Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Bolshoi Ballet and Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch. This season, Hong Kong Sinfonietta will also host the 1st International Conducting Competition.
