Khon at Sala Chalermkrung Royal Theatre
Location : Charoen Krung Road near the Old Siam Plaza

On the auspicious occasion of the 60th anniversary of H.M. King Bhumibol’s accession to the throne in 2006, Sala Chalermkrung Foundation, the Tourism Authority of Thailand, and the Crown Property Bureau jointly organized “Sala Chalermkrung Khon Project” to follow the King’s footsteps in preserving Thai heritage and sharing it with the rest of the world. Khon or Thai Classical Masked Dance Drama is the acme of Thai dramatic arts, which usually draws its stories from the Indian epic Ramayana.

In 1932, Sala Chalermkrung Royal Theatre was ordered to be constructed by King Rama VII as a memorable gift to the Thais on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the founding of Bangkok. The official opening was on Sunday 2 July 1933 when the first talking movie was first shown in Thailand.

Apart from being Southeast Asia’s first air-conditioned cinema, Sala Chalermkrung, has been serving as a national venue for exhibiting breathtaking performances and exhibitions to maintain the authenticity of Thai arts and culture for more than 70 years. And now it is proud to present Thailand’s exquisite masked dance drama to foreign visitors. English subtitles are available on screen above the stage and the explanatory notes of the movements and masks are displayed on film prior to the showtime.
