We attended a performance here by the Royal Ballet of traditional classical Lao dance and music. The show lasted about an hour, between 6 and 7, so was convenient for going on to dinner afterwards, but did not seem too short as it was so full of action, rich costumes, and continuous music. I am a world music enthusiast so this for me was a cultural high spot of our memorable four days in Luang Prabang. The main presentation was an episode from a Buddhist / Hindu myth, of which a different section is performed each evening, with in addition an opening welcome dance, typically featuring girls well trained in beguiling body and hand movements, and followed by a number of pieces including the really amusing monkey dance. I was pleased to buy some CDs of Lao classical music here which were cheaper than anywhere else in Laos.
