85 years later

I had the privilege to see a performance of the Royal Thai Ballet doing a performance of the story of Hanuman. It was absolutely stunning and I would strongly encourage anyone that is able to catch one of their tourers to do so. It is an experience you will remember for all your life.

I was actually fortunate enough to see them perform at the Thailand Cultural Centre in Bangkok. I was in the company of a Thai lady who was able to fill me in on points of the story.

There are screens that provide and English translation above the stage but after a few minutes I was so wrapped up in the performance that I forgot about them.

To quote a modern phrase...

That's hot.

Denishawn

Hope you get more of these majestic dancers. Wow!

[Oh yes. Quite a few more. The millennium is young! - Dave]

Siamese

These 'pagoda' style headdresses are typical Siamese (Thai).

Beautiful!

Beautiful! I'm a costume designer myself and I WISH I had these two for neighbors!
