Le French May 2019
Why We Recommend it
One of Hong Kong’s biggest annual happenings, Le French May is back with two months filled with over 120 music, theatre, film, art and food events held throughout the city.
Returning for its 27th edition, Le French May is dedicated to bringing the best of Gallic culture and cuisine to Asia.
The 2019 festival is inspired by French poet Victor Hugo’s famous quote “Life is a Voyage”, and aims to take visitors on a cultural journey through space and time, East and West.
This year’s programme includes an exhibition of the whimsical world of noted pop artist Niki de Saint Phalle to the latest creations of French design; to the sound of French romantic harp and Spanish castanets with legends Xavier de Maistre and Lucero Tena before heading West to Los Angeles with superstar choreographer Benjamin Millepied; travelling back in time through the mesmerising pictures of post war Paris by Willy Ronnis, to the masterpieces of Berlioz by the renowned Paris Mozart Orchestra adorned by the artworks of Nicolas de Stael.
