Edinburgh International Festival
From: 2013.08.09 To: 2013.09.02
The International Festival began in 1947 with the aim of providing 'a platform for the flowering of the human spirit'. Sounds noble enough, but what does a flowering spirit look like anyway? In this case it is a world-class gathering of classical music, theater, opera, and dance performed in six main venues and numerous smaller stages. Following in the footsteps of the International Festival a half dozen other festivals have taken root in Edinburgh during August and early September, but there is no replacing an original. For lovers of the arts, or those looking to 'flower their spirits', the International Festival in Edinburgh is among the best in Europe.
