Every winter for the past 28 years, the Emile Bustani Auditorium comes to life for a unique and unprecedented tradition in Lebanon: a winter music season. The Al Bustan International Festival of Music and the Performing Arts is one of the Middle East’s iconic cultural events, established by Myrna Bustani as her contribution to reviving culture and the arts in Lebanon after the devastation of 17 years of civil war.
The Al Bustan Festival keeps Lebanon’s rich tradition of hosting international cultural events alive. Held over five weeks in February and March, the festival hosts some of the world’s greatest international musicians and artists who present about 18 performances of predominantly chamber music opera, orchestral concerts, choral concerts, dance and theatre.
