This is the great Ramayana Epic of Hinduism re-written, revised, revamped and occasionally recast for Thailand.
The Ramakien is performed as a lavish stage extravaganza called Khon, with masks, glittery costumes and all the thrills, spills and funky dance moves Thailand is capable of.
It’s a feast for the eyes and ears. There is even a shadow play version called Nang yai. It’s a wonder Metro-Goldwin-Meyer never got their hands on it.
