Singapore International Festival of Arts

Aug 12 to Sept 21, 2014

Inaugurated in 1977, the Singapore International Festival of Arts is today an annual celebration of performing arts, managed independently. This year's festival presents a roster of iconic international artists, from British composer Michael Nyman, whose opera Facing Goya opens the festival, to American avant garde theatre company The Wooster Group, whose Cry, Trojans! (Troilus & Cressida) channels Shakespeare through a Native American lens. Click here for more.
