Opera Siam, now in its Fifteenth Season, is ASEAN's full-service opera, providing a rich season of established classics, innovative new works, contemporary opera, and world premieres of operas by Asian composers.  It was the first opera company in the region to present the operas of Richard Wagner, Massenet's Thaïs, Britten's The Turn of the Screw and The Rape of Lucretia, Bartok's Bluebeard's Castle, Hans Krasa's Brundibar, Gustav Holst's Savitri, and the world premieres of a dozen operatic and balletic works by its Artistic Director, Somtow Sucharitkul, a visionary who is one of the handful of living opera composers in the world with a recognized and substantial corpus of operatic works that is performed around the world.

In its upcoming season, Opera Siam opens with its entertaining "good bits" orchestral version of The Ring Cycle, reduced to ninety minutes and single soprano with a witty narration by its conductor.  The season will also present two episodes of Somtow's ten-opera cycle DasJati which deals with the ten lives of the Buddha from the Buddhist jataka tales.  In between come two Thailand premieres, the acclaimed one-man show Mozart and Me, by Damian Whiteley, and Grigori Frid's chamber opera Anne Frank directed by Adrian Tan.

The Opera’s resident orchestra, the Siam Philharmonic, presents a number of concerts this season as well.  And the Siam Sinfonietta, the orchestra’s youth division, will return to Carnegie Hall this year as well as opening a festival in Johor Baru, Malaysia.

The first episode of DasJati, The Silent Prince, will have an international tour in August, starting at the Zentrum in Bayreuth.
