Things are progressing well with preparations for the opening tonight with 97% of seats for our performances booked, which is amazing!

It is incredibly humid in Hong Kong but we are enjoying our time here. Tomorrow we start a busy schedule: a dress rehearsal followed by the official opening of the Festival, followed by our opening performance. We then have 2 shows on Saturday and 2 on Sunday so not much free time. We also have an event for our sponsors, Marketing Leeds, on Saturday night.

Update…

The Technical Rehearsal went extremely well this afternoon with the production looking the best it ever has. The large stage and auditorium lend themselves perfectly to the scale of the production. This evening we have an event to mark the official opening of the festival. David, Daniel, Steve and I will be attending with some of the dancers. It remains hot and humid with threatening skies but so far no rain!
