It’s Tuesday on Morning Brew. At 9.40 today were off to the theatre with the Artistic Director of the Hong Kong Ballet. Internationally renowned choreographer and director Septime Webre is taking the company from strength to strength, as its relatively new boss. This week they will perform Tchaikovsky’s complex masterpiece Swan Lake, in a version by their former Artistic Director John Meehan. Septime joins us on the line. After 10.30 it’s all things Aussie with Jarrod Watt. He has more brand new music and all the week’s news too. At 11.10 Dr. Merrin Pearse will be with us. He’s back in Hong Kong for his regular eco spot. At 12.10 Morris Miselowski has more biz futurism. On this day in 2001 the game Grand Theft Auto III was released, taking us into a new generation of open world gaming. Eighteen years later consoles have moved into the cloud and we now talk about “gamification”. Listen to Morris for more on all of the above.(9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
