     Following is the speech by the Secretary for Culture, Sports and Tourism, Mr Kevin Yeung, at the Hong Kong Disneyland and Hong Kong Ballet "StellaLou's Wonderful Wishes Ballet" Premiere today (April 3):
Linda (Vice-chairman of Board of Governors of Hong Kong Ballet Ms Linda Fung), Michael (Managing Director of Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, Mr Michael Moriarty), ladies and gentlemen,
     Good evening. It gives me great pleasure to join you all here at the premiere of the exclusive seasonal show "StellaLou's Wonderful Wishes Ballet", co-presented by the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort and Hong Kong Ballet.
     As an iconic tourist attraction, the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort is a magical destination where visitors from all parts of the world make lifelong memories. Hong Kong Ballet has earned international fame and recognition. It also showcases the unique East-meets-West culture, not just in Hong Kong, but also around the world.   
     Tonight's "StellaLou's Wonderful Wishes Ballet" also exemplifies the collaboration between performing arts and tourism. It brings our city's wonderful diversity and creativity in the most fantastic and immersive ways in the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort.
     In their year-long collaborative journey, the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort and Hong Kong Ballet synergise their expertise to give audiences of all ages a truly elevated entertainment experience. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the creative team and the choreographic team for making StellaLou's stage dream of being a dancer eventually come true.  
     Everyone knows StellaLou wears tutu all the time. The very first time that StellaLou met Duffy at a waterfront, StellaLou stumbled when she was practicing dancing. Today, StellaLou is going to join the performance with one of the best ballet groups in the world. I am sure that we are all as excited as she is in the show tonight.
     Lastly, I wish the performance a resounding success. Good show StellaLou and Hong Kong Ballet. Thank you.
