I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change!- Hong Kong Singers
The hit ensemble musical talks about the issues between men and women. A true ensemble piece directed by Wendy Herbert was with minimal scenery, props and costumes. It was just talented singers/actors telling a great story!
Spring Awakening- YAF
Based on the tragic play by Austrian playwright, Frank Wendekind. The musical talks about issues like abortion, incest, rape, masturbation, suicide. You know, you normal musical topics... Oh yeah and the cast is all under the age of 22.
13, the Musical- Theatre Noir

Chopsticks, the Musical- Perry Chiu Experimental Theatre
The new musical created by Perry Chiu is about the famous Canto-pop group The Chopsticks Sisters. It is also the first Cantonese musical to cover the subject of lesbianism in HK culture.
Sun Yet Sen, the Opera- Opera Hong Kong
A commissioned world premiere opera by Opera Hong Kong. Sun Yet Sen was a beautifully designed work and probably more modern than any of the other work done by Opera Hong Kong this year. You can see Satoshi Kyo's review here.
