The Bangkok International Dance and Music Festival has kicked off in Thailand with Swan Lake, TASS reports. At the end of last week, the troupe of the Russian Multimedia Ballet Theater took the stage of the Thailand Cultural Center. Russian dancers brought two classical performances to the capital of Thailand: Swan Lake and The Nutcracker. The leading parts are played by the Bolshoi Theater soloists Kristina Kretova and Igor Tsvirko. They were very warmly welcomed by the audience. 

The Russian Multimedia Ballet Theater combines the classical choreography with modern technology - the action takes place simultaneously on stage and on screens that replace the usual scenery.

The Bangkok International Dance and Music Festival has been held for almost 25 years. During its existence, it has become one of the most notable events in the cultural life of Southeast Asia, with the Russian ballet taking part in it almost every year. 

According to the organizers, next year, it is planned to invite the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Moscow Academic Musical Theater.
