Traditional Performance entertainment in Asia
- Sort by:
In a Thai art deco building at the edge of the Chinatown-Phahurat district, this theatre provides a striking venue for kŏhn (masked dance-drama based on stories from the Ramakian, the Thai version of the Ramayana). When it opened in 1933, the royally funded Chalermkrung was the largest and most modern theatre in Asia. Today, kŏhn performances are held every Thursday and Friday and last about two hours plus intermission. The theatre requests that patrons dress respectfully, which means no shorts, tank tops or sandals.
