Wondrous
Encounters

Seasons come and seasons go, so does everything in the universe. Early summer is a time when flowers bloom and an ideal moment for artistic meanders. 

The 34th Macao Arts Festival is ready to take off with a string of “wondrous encounters”, featuring an array of fantastical and novel programmes inviting the audience to discover and embrace the arts together. When the curtains open, countless characters, images and events will shine on the limelight. Each and every occasion will be a peculiar encounter, be it a beautiful rendezvous, a passionate date, or a precious reunion.
