The University of Hong Kong Museum Society presents a weekend in Taichung, a city with a profound cultural heritage. The highlight of this tour features Toyo Ito’s “great” creation, the National Taichung Theatre. Coinciding with this visit to the world class performance space, we are pleased to present an avant-garde international performance of an opera "Die Walküre" by Wagner.
Members will enjoy three art viewings specially organized by art collector Mr. Leo Shih – an important exhibition of Zao Wou-ki’s paintings at the Asia Museum of Modern Art, an exhibition of contemporary Japanese artist Suda Yoshihiro’s works at the Yu-Hsiu Museum of Art, and a home visit to Shih’s private art collection.
To savour the art of gastronomy, we will dine at the internationally recognized Le Moût Restaurant located at the heart of the city. In between, we will explore different restaurants that offer unique taste of Taiwanese cuisine.
