[Hong Kong – 20 Sep 2016]  On 19 September 2016, The Hong Kong Ballet Guild hosted its first Guild event of the 2016/17 Season, graciously sponsored by luxury fashion brand Shanghai Tang. A private viewing of its new AW2016 collection followed by a luncheon at the Shanghai Tang flagship mansion.

During the luncheon, The Hong Kong Ballet Guild Co-chairs Mrs Leigh Tung Chou, Mrs Anne Wang Liu and Mrs Sharie Ross Tse thanked all of the Guild members and guests for their loyal patronage and support as well as Shanghai Tang for generously sponsoring the event. Mr Raffaele Borriello also warmly welcomed the Guild members and their guests and the Hong Kong Ballet representatives.

Hong Kong Ballet’s Artistic Director Madeleine Onne provided the guests with an insider’s perspective of the 2016/17 Season’s exciting productions including the Asian première of Val Caniparoli’s Lady of the Camellias in November, touring plans and other special activities.

Since its establishment in 2008, The Hong Kong Ballet Guild has regularly arranged events, including the annual Nutcracker Christmas Benefit, Post-performance Parties, Meet-and-Greet Sessions with the dancers, Studio Visits and Backstage Tours. The Guild also engages with the community by extending invitations to children from various charitable organisations to watch Hong Kong Ballet’s performances.
