    Life, Stan Gayuski, Published on 20/06/2019

    » Somtow Sucharitkul's DasJati -- Ten Lives Of The Buddha was one of the most daring ideas in the history of music, to take the iconic stories of the Buddha's last 10 lives from the Pali canon and adapt them as an integrated work consisting of 10 music dramas.

It seemed possible that the maverick artistic director of Opera Siam might have bitten off more than he could chew.

The production was part of the 70th anniversary celebrations of His Majesty the King's accession to the throne, and the two shows, particularly the afternoon one, were packed, auguring well for an audience for opera in Thailand.
