Sponsored by the China Merchants Charitable Foundation, the Hong Kong Dance Company staged two performances of “The Legend of Mulan” to a full house at The Belarusian State Academic Musical Theatre in Minsk, Belarus on 21 and 22 June, receiving standing ovations from the ardent audiences. The government of Belarus considered our performance tour an important cultural exchange event, and numerous ministers and high officials attended the performances. We also visited the Palace of Culture in Smolevichsky, meeting with local performing arts students and folk artists. What a fruitful and rewarding trip!
