Source: newsgd.com

Editor’s note: These last few days, it takes a lot of courage to go outside or stay in a place without air-conditioners. According to the Guangdong Meteorological Observatory, the hot weather will last until at least May 26th.

Here are some indoor events recommended for your weekend. How about going to a concert or visiting some interesting culture or art exhibitions in Guangzhou?

Music & Stage Art

Debussymania at Xinghai Concert Hall

A playful musical joust of epic proportions between two French pianists, Hugues Leclère and Jean-François Zygel, this concert combines Debussy’s most well-known pieces with solo and duet improvisations. As a pianist, Debussy devoted his life to improvisation and interpretation. Hugues Leclère and Jean-François Zygel take inspiration from Debussy’s art of the moment where music surges forth from the imagination.

Monologues: Revel’s world of Shakespeare

Revel’s World of Shakespeare was written and will also be performed and directed by Joseph Graves, renowned American actor/writer/director. What he is going to offer is a once-in-a-lifetime theatrical experience about Shakespeare and his followers.
