Conductor and artistic director at Bangkok Opera, Somtow Sucharitkul, has made the photographs below available at his Facebook page (click the link). They feature a visit by the Thai Royal family to Bayreuth in 1960 and provide a fascinating document of Bayreuth at that time (some unique photos of Lohengrin we think you will agree).  We also include a performance of Mahler's 8th conducted by Sucharitkul, earlier this year and making its premiere in Thailand.
