In December 2023, Bangkok and Phuket will host a unique event - the tour of the St. Petersburg State Academic Ballet Theatre named after Leonid Yakobson as part of the Russian Ballet Week in Thailand.
The festival of Russian ballet will be an incredible combination of history and modern culture. It will include entertainment and magnificent performances by world-class artists.
Two performances will take place in Bangkok on the 19th and 20th of December: "Swan Lake" and "The Nutcracker", and on the 23rd and 24th of December, for the first time in the history of Phuket and the southern part of Thailand, these performances will be shown in the open air. The performances will be accompanied by the Bangkok Royal Symphony Orchestra with invited conductor Valery Ovsyannikov.
"Swan Lake" and "The Nutcracker" are works that have become real legends of ballet culture. They will open the world of grace, elegance and beauty to the audience.
The Thai Cultural Centre, located in the centre of Bangkok, was chosen for the Ballet Theatre performances in Bangkok. On 1 April 1985, Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn laid the first foundation stone. She named this place the Thai Cultural Centre. His Royal Highness King Bhumibol Adulyadej officially opened the Thai Cultural Centre on 9 October 1987.
In Phuket, the performances will take place at Laguna Grove, the first integrated complex in Asia. It is ideally located on the northwest coast of Phuket in the Bang Tao area. Art of Events has developed a unique stage, partners and boxes to create the atmosphere of a true classical theatre. Guests will be able to enjoy the ballet.
An extension of international cooperation is the International Festival of Russian Ballet. This event will be a meeting of the cultures of two nations and an incomparable experience, conceived and implemented by Art of Events with the aim of supporting and expanding Thai-Russian relations.
The ballet is organized by Art of Events, one of the leading companies in the organization of unique events in South East Asia and the Middle East, including celebrity concerts, music festivals, shows, exclusive events and other large-scale events.
