International Festival of Dance and Music Returns to Bangkok, Thailand! | Bangkok Dance & Music Festival

Bangkok’s International Dance Festival will return in September. Prepare for two weeks of vibrant and exciting dance, musical, and full band orchestra performances from 9 countries.

Balletomanes will enjoy six performances from Russia, France and Germany. The highlight will be Russia’s award-winning Ekaterinburg Ballet, which will perform “Katya and the Prince of Siam,” a performance based on the life of a prince dispatched by King Rama V to cement the ties between Russia and Siam. The performance combines Thai classical dance with ballet choreographed by Vasily Medvedev of the Bolshoi Theatre.


Ballet classics such as “Cinderella,” “Le Corsaire,” and “Spartacus” will be performed by Russian ballet companies. Moreover, the world renowned Stuttgart Ballet from Germany will bring joy and laugher with their rendition of “The Taming of the Shrew.”

Accompanying the classics are the Antonio Andrade Flamenco Company’s exciting “Carmen,” mysterious “Torera,” and one of the greatest musicals, “West Side Story.” A contemporary ballet version of “Beauty and the Beast” will warm your heart.

On the musical side, the Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra (SPO) and the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra (LNSO) will each be majestically performing some of the greatest classics: “Hungarian Rhapsody No 2 in C-sharp minor” and “Symphony No. 9 in E minor.” SPO will also feature the outstanding Lu Siqing, the first Asian winner of the Paganini International Violin Competition.

Rounding up the enjoyment comes the “World of Wonders” magic show by Peter Marvey and Flying Superkids acrobat troupe that will leave you astonished by their gravity-defying antics.
