Singapore (Vocus) September 1, 2010 –
Agoda, Asia’s global hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Pricelince.com, today announces special hotel rates for travelers headed to France for the Festival d'Automne à Paris.
Festival d'Automne à Paris – the Paris Autumn Festival – takes place from September 9 to December 31. The festival, inaugurated in 1972 by Michel Guy, who would become France's Minister of Culture, is an annual event that showcases contemporary opera, theater, dance, film, literature, poetry and visual arts.
The Paris Autumn Festival is unique in that it promotes artistic experimentation, with a specific focus on foreign-language, non-Western creative works. The season-long program invites fresh material from ground-breaking new artists and performers from around the world, plus commissioned works from established production companies.
This 39th edition of the Paris Autumn Festival promises to offer a broad and eclectic range of performances to enrich and educate visitors. This year's program features everything from traditional Indian 'baithak' concerts to contemporary reproductions of Hamlet, with tickets priced from €8- €36 (USD10 - USD46). Performances take place in various iconic locations across Paris, including the Centre Pompidou, the Paris Opera and the Opera Bastille.
Highlights from the 2010 program include short plays on contemporary Japanese society by Toshiki Okada, a free interpretation of Bizet's The Tragedy of Carmen by Peter Brook and several dance recitals by the acclaimed Merce Cunningham Dance Company.
