The spectacle that we will see in the Ducal Palace is possible thanks to the recovery effort that began after the fall of the Khmer Rouge, who from 1975 to 1979 pursued and eliminated almost all teachers of dance and music. After the fall of the regime and with the help of a group of senior teachers of ballet, were collected every one of 4,000 movements up the Khmer classical dance and that was the source of a resurgence of which can be enjoyed on 9 July in Palau and the Unesco has declared a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
