Damascus, SANA – Director of the Opera House Juan Qarajuli said that the new season of performances at Dar al-Assad for Culture and Art – Damascus Opera House will begin with the “Syria Rainbow” festival for folk music and song.

In a press conference on Wednesday, Qarajuli said that the five-day festival will begin on Sunday, and will showcase traditional folk music from across Syria, and that this event has a performance art aspect as well as a documentary aspect, as it will focus on the heritage and cultural aspects of the music being performed.
