Music Nation: Slava's SnowShow
“Slava’s Snowshow is to clowning what Cirque du Soleil is to the circus…Slava’s Snowshow is as theatrical as it is simple, as involving as it is inspiring." - Variety

The highly-reviewed stage spectacle ‘Slava’s Snowshow’, which is set to leave audiences snow-bound in this hot summer, will come back to Hong Kong in August after a sell-out winter season ten years ago.

Music Nation is preparing to host the live event, created and staged by the most celebrated living clown, Russian pantomime artist Slava Polunin, from 1- 6 August at the Lyric Theatre, Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.

Tickets on sale Thursday April 27
The show will be staged from 8:00pm on August 1-6, with two shows at 02:00pm and 08:00pm on August 5-6. Tickets are now available from Hong Kong Ticketing’s box offices and online at: http://www.hkticketing.com/events/WCSLAVA0817

The stage show, a visual masterpiece loved by teens and adults alike, comes highly recommended for children above eight years of age.

Slava’s Snowshow is a fusion of traditional and contemporary theatrical clowning that weaves a beautifully crafted, vibrant visual fantasy. Among the many unique and striking experiences Slava’s Snowshow will offer audiences is the creation of a winter snowstorm right inside the theatre. The show has entertained audiences in more than 30 countries and 120 cities, including New York, London, Los Angeles, Paris, Rome, Hong Kong, Sydney, Rio de Janeiro and Moscow. The London Times described the show as a theatre classic of the 20th century and dubbed Slava Polunin as ‘the best clown in the world’.
