Royal Academy of Dance at Mandarin Oriental
August 11, 2018 - August 12, 2018
August 11 – 12: The Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) presents an exclusive ballet performance from some of the world’s finest young dancers at Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong, complimented by a specially-made menu. The hotel’s lobby will be brought to life with the stunningly choreographed dance while guests indulge in afternoon tea at the Clipper Lounge and Lobby Lounge.
Representing 13 nationalities, the talented dancers have been hand-picked to partake in this year’s RAD Genée International Ballet Competition – one of the world’s most prestigious ballet competitions.
The week-long event takes place at Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts and Hong Kong City Hall from August 3 to 12. Making its Hong Kong debut in 2006, Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong celebrates the return of Genée to the city with a pop-up ballet performance by the semi-finalists exclusively on the last weekend. Executive pastry chef Yves Matthey has created a ballet-inspired dessert to be incorporated in the classic afternoon tea menu.
