Description: Renowned for its graceful hand gestures and stunning costumes, this exquisite troupe has been recognized by UNESCO for carrying on the 1,000-year-old Khmer classical dance style, which was originally performed at royal events and sacred ceremonies. Her Royal Highness Princess Norodom Buppha Devi serves as the company’s choreographer. An orchestra accompanies the dance, which embodies the traditional values of refinement, respect and spirituality. A female chorus provides a running commentary on the plot, highlighting the emotions mimed by the dancers, who were considered the kings’ messengers to the gods and to the ancestors.
