The Government Inspector – The Musical

Adapted from the satirical masterpiece by celebrated Russian dramatist Nikolai Gogol, The Government Inspector – The Musical is a comedy of errors that charmed generations of playgoers with its acute characterisation, arresting plotline and sarcastic tone, resulting in a penetrating probe on the corrupted and rotten bureaucratic system and the ugly human nature that fuels it. With a live orchestra, Gogol’s eternal classic was revitalised in an absurd imaginary city and performed as a full-length musical, adding contemporary comedic elements into this eternal classic.

The Government Inspector – The Musical received critical acclaim and the Best Original Score Award at the Hong Kong Drama Awards 2016.
