The City Festival 2007 opens on Thursday. It's organised by the Hong Kong Fringe Club, and aims to be a festival of urban culture. With us in the studio to tell us more is the Fringe's director Benny Chia. There's a wide variety of performers, both local and international, taking part in the City Festival. Among them are the dancers of the Bare Stage Project, who are putting on two different productions on the 24th and 25th of the month. We talk to the choreographers/dancers of one of those productions. In our movie section this week we present not a film review but a look at a new way of watching films in Hong Kong. The territory's first ever drive-in movie theatre has just opened. Throughout January Hong Kong is hosting the 6th Chinese Drama Festival. Highlighted are 80 performances of 15 different productions, including many of the best recent stage productions from Beijing, Macau, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. The festival theme is "a centennial celebration of Chinese drama". Finally, performing in the studio for us tonight are violinist Zhu Bei and pianist Warren Lee. They're about to present all three of Brahms' Violin Sonatas in recital, and play us an excerpt from one of them.
