The Snow Dragon (Asian Premiere)

  • Thailand Cultural Center Samsen Nok, Huai Khwang Bangkok 10310 Thailand

A WORLD PREMIERE opera by award winning novelist and composer Somtow Sucharitkul. The Snow Dragon is the fantastical tale about a boy named Billy Binder who often escapes to an imaginary world of eternal snow, where he rides a dragon, fights monsters and rescues princesses. Unfortunately, it’s also ruled by the evil and omnipresent ‘Ringmaster’ and his whip. Billy feels no pain in this magical universe, unlike the real world he faces at home. The Snow Dragon is a classic tale of good vs. evil. Experience this amazing new work before it heads to Thailand for a special performance for His Majesty the King!

Appropriate for ages 12 and up. Contains mild violence.
