Dinner Theater Dancers

Traditional Khmer dances are staged at a dinner theater in Siem Reap. This dance shows an apsara running away from Hanuman, the Monkey God. This scene comes from the Ramayana and tells the story of the rescue of Queen Sita, Vishnu's wife, who was kidnapped by the cruel king of Ceylon. Hanuman is a rascal, and leads the monkey army in this successful mission.
