Arts lovers can look forward to a packed and varied programme during the 32nd Macao Arts Festival which has been themed “Invigorate”.

The festival, set to be held in May, will focus on programmes from both Macao and the mainland, and previews of four programmes have already been launched, by the Cultural Affairs Bureau.

The programmes are: Hong Kong choreographer Willy Tsao Sing-yuen’s contemporary dance theatre production Free Man from the South, which draws inspiration from the poems of Tang Dynasty poet Li Bai;  playwright Zhu Yi and director Ding Yiteng’s I Am a Moon, which uses the “craters on the moon to tell six independent but interrelated stories”; a joint production of classic Ancient Greek tragedy Electra  by the Shanghai Dramatic Arts Centre and a Greek production team; and a Shanghai-style Peking opera New Dragon Inn produced by Shi Yihong, an actress of the Mei school from the Shanghai Jingju Theatre Company.

For the first day of ticket sales on 3 April, an online reservation system has been arranged at the Macau Ticketing Network in line with pandemic prevention measures and in order to reduce crowds gathering, The Macau Post Daily reported.
