The 41st edition of the Singapore International Festival of Arts (SIFA 2018) features artists from a spectrum of art forms set to engage and inspire audiences, from new festival goers to seasoned arts lovers. Commissioned by the National Arts Council and organised by Arts House Limited, the pinnacle performing arts festival will be held over 17 days from 26 April to 12 May 2018 helmed by new Festival Director, Gaurav Kripalani (2018 to 2020),
During the three-week festival, The Arts House will be transformed into the Festival House, where the mix of intimate spaces will lend itself to unique opportunities for performances, interactions and deeper, meaningful engagement between audiences and festival artists. Talks, films, workshops, master-classes, music salons and a book club will offer avenues for reflection and discussion.
SIFA 2018 will be programmed across a wide spectrum of venues, including The Arts House, Empress Lawn, Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, Victoria Theatre and Victoria Concert Hall, School of the Arts, Armenian Church, National Gallery Singapore and Singapore Botanic Gardens.
The ticketing structure this year has also been refreshed to allow different communities easier access to the Festival. Students, National Servicemen and seniors, for example, will receive concession pricing across all productions, including $10 Student front row seats for most showings. SIFA 2018 has also introduced new ticket bundle deals, where audiences can enjoy flexibility in engaging with the Festival with access to three or five different high-quality shows to experience a variety of Festival offerings. Tickets are available at SISTIC.
