Review |
New Nutcracker production a triumph for Hong Kong Ballet and its artistic director Septime Webre

  • With its Hong Kong setting and playful cultural references, new production is a crowd-pleaser. The sets are stunning and imaginative costumes a riot of colour
  • Ye Feifei dazzles as the Sugar Plum Fairy, as does Shen Jie as the Monkey King and Lead Jockey, but the Nutcracker character is left with too little to do
