Historical figures not only shaped our past, but provide inspiration for stage entertainment. The Hong Kong Dance Company (HKDC) will stage Emperor Qianlong And Fragrant Concubine, an ethnic dance drama, beginning Friday.

The drama focuses on the relationship between Emperor Qianlong and Fragrant Concubine, an Uygur beauty who has an irresistible scent.

To stimulate the economy during this post-Sars period, the HKDC is offering a bargain: buy one and get one for an extra $1. For details, visit

The drama will be staged from Friday to Sunday at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre. Tickets between $90 and $180 are available.
