From September 8
From September 8th to October 19th, the Bangkok International Festival of Dance and Music 2016 brings over 40 artists from across the world to perform at the Thailand Cultural Center. This is the 18th edition of this hugely anticipated annual event, and things begin with three nights of performances by the Moscow Stanislavsky Ballet—September 8, 9 and 11—followed by India’s extraordinary Aditi Mangaldas Dance Company on the 14th of the month. Other international performances will showcase celebrated touring companies from as far afield as Germany, Switzerland, France, Israel, Canada, Spain, Turkey, and the USA. Some visitors however will be from not so distant locales, including the award-winning China National Acrobatic Troupe from Beijing who will be doing an evening performance on Friday, September 30th, followed by afternoon shows on Saturday and Sunday (October 1st and 2nd). Ticket prices differ for each performance, ranging from B600 to B4,500.
