Box office receipts for the Edinburgh International Festival went down by 3.3% this year.

He insisted the festival – which featured Chinese opera and ballet, Indian dance and Korean productions of Shakespeare – had performed “extremely well”, saying a slight drop in ticket income had been predicted because so many acts were unfamiliar to the festival’s core audience.

Critics have heaped praise on shows such as the Peony Pavilion, by the National Ballet of China, and Shanghai Peking Opera Troupe’s Revenge of Prince Zi Dan, although many productions had widespread availability and tickets were still available for the end-of-festival fireworks display last night.

The festival continued to attract strong foreign interest with audiences from 75 different counties, 2,500 artists from 38 nations and increased diplomatic and media presence from Asian countries. Over a quarter of a million people are estimated to have watched the Virgin Money Fireworks Concert on Sunday night which marked the end of the festival.
