We recently attended a performance by the London based 'Shakespeare's Globe Theatre company at the HKAPA Lyric Theatre and very much enjoyed their production of 'A Mid Summer Night's Dream'.

We occasionally attend performances at the Lyric theater at the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts (HKAPA) in Wan Chai.
