This program showcases the breathtaking beauty and exquisite skill of the dancers of the Royal Ballet of Cambodia, performing live in France. They dance Reamker, Cambodia's version of India's Ramayana, which tells how Prince Rama's beautiful wife Sita is abducted by Ravana, the demon-king of Sri Lanka; the Moni Mekhala, describing the union between the goddess Keo Moni and the giant Ream Eyso; and the snake dance, Makara. The stories told on stage are explained in captions punctuating the scenes.
