The upcoming 49th Hong Kong Arts Festival will open on February 27th with a different format this year – a combination of in-venue performances and online programmes.

The festival was originally planned to be opened by Wiener Symphoniker but given the impossibility to travel to China due to the epidemic prevention, two online concerts will be screened.

In these two concerts, the venerated Wiener Symphoniker honours its heritage with a gala concert dedicated to the 150th anniversary of Franz Lehár, the king of Viennese operetta, while embarking upon another grand era with an inaugural concert led by its new Music Director, Andrés Orozco-Estrada.
