SPRING OF CULTURE 2013

Ballet-Revolucion1-620x285

March and April are fantastic months to be in Bahrain.  The weather is comfortable and the Spring of Culture is taking place.

Of course, it is fun to see big names like Bocelli, but what I love about Spring of Culture is we get to see lesser known, but amazing, performers from around the world.  There will be lecturers from Lebanon, Morocco, Yemen and Tunisia; dancers from Cuba and India; an international poets panel; and family events by creative teams from Scotland, Italy, Lebanon and Australia.

The government sponsors much of Revealing Bahrain’s month-long, extravaganza of art, music, dance, poetry, and children’s programs.  Except for the ten ticketed shows, most events are FREE to the public.

A new addition to this year’s line-up is the newly opened Bahrain National Theater that reminds me of the Kennedy Center.  Il Divo, the Mahler Orchestra and Yanni will be performing there.  The Cuban dancers be performing at the beloved Arad Fort where every year we encounter a new parking experience.

Spring of Culture is more web-savvy this year.  Their updated website is a huge improvement.  And you can LIKE them on FACEBOOK and keep up on Tweeter.

A big congratulations to Sheikha Mai, who with strength and finesse, single-handedly deals with the opposing voices.  Thanks to the Ministry of Culture team for once again highlighting all that is good about living in Bahrain.
