The Legend of Apsara Mera

The Royal Ballet of Cambodia
Choreographed by Her Royal Highness Pincess Norodom Buppha Devi

For a thousand years, the Royal Ballet of Cambodia danced only for the gods. Resurrected spectacularly in the wake of the Khmer Rouge into a closely guarded yet flourishing modern form, the Royal Ballet comes to BAM with the breathtaking Legend of Apsara Mera, featured as a centerpiece of the citywide Season of Cambodia festival.

With movement constructed by Her Royal Highness Princess Norodom Buppha Devi, a former prima ballerina in the Khmer tradition, Apsara Mera conjures the sanctified realm of two origin stories integral to Khmer culture: Churning of the Sea of Milk and The Legend of Kambu and Mera. Sumptuous movement, finely wrought costumes, and chanting evoke the comings and goings of celestial serpents and nymphs in this powerful offering from Southeast Asia, infused with divine ambrosia and modern expression alike.
