telling the story of Luang Prabang

Every evening, from 6.30-7.30pm, we present a selection of traditional Lao stories in English, with the live musical accompaniment of the khene. The stories range from Luang Prabang-specific to tales which are popular all over Laos. During the show, you will learn the origins, according to folklore, of such local landmarks as Mount Phusi, the Mekong, and the Nam Khan River, as well as encountering such legendary characters as Xieng Mieng, the archetypal trickster, and Fa Ngum, the first king of Lan Xang. The stories are accompanied by khene – a handmade bamboo mouth organ, and the quinessential Lao folk instrument.

Tickets cost 50,000 Kip and can be bought at the theatre from 6pm. A selection of drinks can be purchased inside.
