Thirtieth al-Bustan Festival

"Against all odds" is the motto of this thirtieth - and yes, already - edition, taking place from 21 February to 17 March. The festival is directed by Myrna Boustani and her vice-president, Laura Lahoud. The programme includes fifteen concerts and a tribute to Puccini to commemorate the centenary of his death.
