Revisit the past
The Memorable Time exhibition
Today, Macau’s Taipa Island boasts any number of modern attractions ranging from the Macau Stadium and the Macau Jockey Club to Taipa Village and The Macau Roosevelt Hotel. Nearly a hundred years ago, however, one-fifth of the total land area was given over to Kwong Hing Tai, the largest of six firecracker manufacturers on the island, which at its peak, employed one-third of the population and produced three million firecrackers daily. At the time firecrackers were one of the three main handicraft industries and exports from Macau, alongside incense and matches. Visitors can learn about Macau’s traditional industries, and people who worked in them, at a new exhibition entitled The Memorable Time – The Traditional Handicraft Industries of Macao, at the Macao Museum.

Le Songe, Monte-Carlo Ballet
The Monte-Carlo Ballet presents a feast for the eyes with its stylish modern production of Le Songe (The Dream), an adaptation of Shakespear’s A Midsummer Night's Dream. The company’s artistic director Jean-Christophe Maillot has created a radical re-working of the play, which is, in turn, mischievous, immodest and frolicsome. Using three different "voices" for the three distinct sets of characters (blank verse for the Athenian courtiers, rhymed verse for the fairies, prose for the "rude mechanicals"), he invites the audience into a dream-like atmosphere that is indeed puckish.

Tokyo Horror Experience
Halloween may be over but the thrills continue. The Tokyo Horror Experience, a haunted house event that has been held in Japan for more than a decade, offers brave-hearted participants a multi-sensory journey into fear. The experience is divided into two parts, the Modern edition, set in a spooky sanitorium, and the Ancient edition, which is set among cursed ruins dating back to the Taisho era, roughly 100 hundred years ago. While nearly one million visitors have taken part in the event since its launch, each edition is limited to four-six individuals. Thrill-seekers would be wise, or foolish, depending on your point of view, to book tickets now.
