The magnificent 7 anniversary celebration of luxurious and glorious At Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok
BANGKOK, 19 September 2017 –Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok is celebrating seven years of providing luxurious and glorious experiences for local and international guests with a series of exceptional events and promotions.
On 27 September 2017 Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok celebrates its seventh anniversary of providing unrivalled comfort and luxury to guests to a traditional Thai classical masked dance based upon Ramayana (or Ramakien Epic). The performance takes place in the lavish setting of the hotel’s spacious lobby on 27 September 2017 from 17:00 hrs.
This classical ‘Khon’ performance was formerly witnessed only at the royal court, performed by men in masks accompanied by narrators and a traditional ‘Pipphat’ ensemble playing classical Thai music on wind and percussion instruments.
Hotel guests and visitors are invited to watch the performance – an episode from Ramayana Epic called Phra Ram and Thotsakan in Combat or The Royal Battle by members of the Fine Arts Department at the Ministry of Culture.
This episode portrays the royal battle between Phra Ram (Rama) and his brother Pra Lak (Lakshmana) on one side and Thotsakan (Rayana), the demon king of Krung Longka (known as Sri Lanka) on the other side.
As Thotsakan sweeps aside monkey warriors he provokes Phra Ram (Rama) and Phra Lak, and challenges them to individual combat – an invitation accepted by royal brothers without hesitation. Hanuman, the white monkey, also joins in the fray on Rama’s side. The battle is pursued in earnest but, after a short while, Thotsakan withdraws and retreats into Krung Longka (Sri Lanka) with his army of demons.
“This Khon performance will undoubtedly enchant our guests and visitors as we welcome remarkable Thai culture whilst celebrating our hotel’s seventh anniversary,” said hotel General Manager Samir Wildemann. “We are eager to share with our guests the essence of Thai culture. The traditional Thai classical masked dance symbolizes the nobility, elegance and gracefulness of that era. It will be a mesmerising performance.”
Witness this magnificent ‘Khon’ in the lobby of the Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok on Wednesday, 27 September 2017 at 17:00 hrs. The hotel lobby will be decorated with a spectacular floral centre-piece to add colour to this amazing spectacle.
