Canto-pop sensation Sandy Lam will team up with pop composer/singer Anthony Lun in a crossover concert presented by the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra. The performances will be held at the Hong Kong Coliseum from Thursday until March 8.

Lam has been charming audiences from Hong Kong and Taiwan since the 1980s. The versatile Lun is her long-time collaborator.

In this concert, the duo will perform their Canto-pop hits under the baton of Choi Ho-man, backed up by the 90 musicians in the orchestra. Their pop repertoires will be fused with the enchanting classical melodies of Copland, Rachmaninov and Puccini. Renowned local jazz guitarist Eugene Pao will make a guest appearance with an unplugged performance.

The shows will start at 8pm. Tickets cost $400, $200 and $120 and can be purchased through Urbtix

on 2734 9009.


The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) will offer audiences a glimpse of Shakespeare's 37 plays in just 97 minutes.

London's long-running comedy hit features Australians Ezra Bix, Tim Schwerdt and Berynn Schwerdt.

They will wear tights and trainers to play over 100 different characters, and turn Shakespeare's works into pure fun. The show includes a gangster rap take on Othello, and Titus Andronicus will be twisted into a cooking show.

The act will run from tomorrow until March 13 at 8pm, with a weekend matinee at 3pm, at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts Drama Theatre. Tickets cost $395, $295 and $195. A preview for students will be held today at 8pm. Tickets to that cost $100. All available at HK Ticketing on 31 288 288.
