Young Cantonese opera artists to perform Shakespeare adaptation
Presented as part of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department's Young Cantonese Opera Artists Series, the Hong Kong Young Talent Cantonese Opera Troupe will perform the recently premiered "A Dream in Fantasia", which is adapted from Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream".
