EVENT DESCRIPTION

Experience classical music at its most… delicious?!

McDull, an innocent kindergartener piggy and a local cartoon icon, is brought to the concert hall by his mother in hopes of bringing her child up to be the society’s successful and cultured elite. McDull is not sure how much smarter the music is immediately making him, but he can certainly feel how much it is reminding him of the scrumptious, hearty food of good old Hong Kong cafés… and off he drifts to a fantastical world where he and his friends devour great music, dish after dish!
