Bangkok’s International Festival of Dance & Music was inspired by a man’s vision to organise an annual international cultural event for the Thai capital, on par with those staged in major cities around the world, and thereby also develop the breadth and depth of dance and music in Thailand.

The Festival has over time grown in size and repute, and now, for each annual five-to-six-week season, approximately 1,000 performing artistes from around the world fly into Bangkok to participate in this cultural extravaganza, which has secured a reputation amongst theatre-goers in Asia and Europe.

The 2010 season will present 17 productions by artistes and theatres from Argentina, Switzerland, Israel, Cuba, United Kingdom, Brazil and Russia. The programme includes operas, contemporary dance, ballet classics, classical concerts and ethnic dances.

Date: 11 September – 24 October
Venue: Thailand Cultural Center, Bangkok’s Ratchadaphisek Rd
