ARTY PARTY: King Bhumibol Adulyadej's sixth-cycle (72nd) birthday on Dec. 5 has inspired a coalition of Thailand's arts boosters and corporate sponsors to help fund Bangkok's first International Festival of Dance and Music. Scheduled for Aug. 5 to 15 at the city's 2,000-seat Thailand Cultural Centre, the festival offers an eclectic lineup of multicultural performing arts as part of the gala celebrations leading up to the royal birthday. Headlining the series is the Tashkent State Academic Bolshoi Theatre of Opera and Ballet, featuring 150 dancers and musicians performing Don Quixote (Aug. 5 and 6) and The Nutcracker (Aug. 8). Other artists appearing in the festival include the Kouichi Hiroki Quartet, a modern jazz band from Japan; a group from India's Shriram Bharatiya Kala Kendra, performing a dance-drama based on the Ramayana; the Georgian National Dance Company; and Thai teen pop sensation Amita Tata Young. For program and ticket information, call the organizers at 66-2-661-6829 or send an e-mail message to
