Festival restarts and the best is yet to come

For the 31st Macao Arts Festival

2020 left in our memory one word, “extraordinary”. 

A year ago, the Macao Arts Festival – already well-prepared to hit the stage – pressed the pause button following the global situation. In 2021, the 31st Macao Arts Festival will be hitting the road again, with the theme of “Restart”.
