Fragrant Village Music Festival: ALARM
1.11 - 8.12.2019
Themed as ALARM, the 1st Fragrant Village Music Festival aims to awaken the city with music in wild and town. It takes place across city centre and borderland villages whereby the audience can embrace different senses to taste the voice of Neoclassical music, explore the soul of Hong Kong and touch with an alternative B-side of its history.

Anne & Zef
Monique Krüs, a Dutch Neo-Opera composer, will introduce her new opera play Anne & Zef in Hong Kong with local collaboration by Vicky Shin (conductor), Joyce Law (singer), Lam Kwok Ho (singer), and Ensemble Traversée (orchestra) at the colourful village of valuable indigenous culture - Ta Kwu Ling Ping Che Alliance for Saving Our Home Visiting Centre.

Anne & Zef is adapted from an original play of the same name by Dutch playwright Ad de Bont. Anne Frank and Zef Bunga both live in fear of being discovered. Anne is hiding from Nazi troops, Zef is trapped at home in a society where families avenge one death with another. For survival, ones have to put on their youth and inherit a life they didn't choose with anger. Who killed the dream of a 15-year-old? Who wrote a dirge for the struggling youth?
