阿德萊德 - Cabaret Festival Art performance

Hong Kong’s Fringe Club will play host to performers from one of South Australia’s biggest arts events – the Adelaide Cabaret Festival – from 17-20 October 2013.
The performances will provide locals with the opportunity to experience the colour and excitement of the world’s largest Cabaret festival, held in Adelaide every June.
South Australian Tourism Commission Chief Executive Rodney Harrex said the Adelaide Cabaret Festival is just one of many events that draw thousands of visitors to South Australia every year. “January is Tour Time in South Australia, with the world’s biggest cycling stars flocking to our State for the Santos Tour Down Under – the only UCI World Tour event in the Southern Hemisphere,” Mr Harrex said. “The month of March is known locally as ‘Mad March’ due to the abundance of festivals and events held in Adelaide, including the Adelaide Festival, Fringe Festival, Clipsal 500 Adelaide V8 Supercar event, and WOMADelaide world music festival.”
“Tasting Australia, Australia’s premier culinary festival is staged every two years, with the next event to be held from 27 April – 4 May 2014.” The Adelaide Cabaret Festival is run by and held at the Adelaide Festival Centre, located on the picturesque banks of the River Torrens. Artists performing as part of the promotion at the Hong Kong Fringe Club include stunning Australian soprano Ali McGregor, Adelaide’s own Michael Griffiths, charismatic cabaret king Paul Capsis, talented Sydney soloist Catherine Alcorn and French/Australian duo Emma and Thomas Hamilton.
The Adelaide Festival Centre’s “Our Mob” program will also be on show, with the Fringe Club’s gallery housing a display of some of Australia’s best indigenous artwork, all available for sale.
Premium South Australian food and wines will be showcased, with food samples and wine tastings available. Mr Harrex said he hoped this promotion would encourage increased visitation to South Australia. “The best of SA will be on show at this event – including our vibrant events and festivals, premium food and wine, and authentic indigenous culture,” Mr Harrex said. “For those who want more though, South Australia is also home to natural wildlife experiences, unique coastal and aquatic attractions, and unforgettable self-drive journeys.”
“Our latest results show visitation from Hong Kong to South Australia is up 13%, and we hope to welcome more visitors in the near future.”
Tickets for all performances are available to purchase on the Hong Kong Fringe Club website, at www.hkfringe.com.hk.
