The Royal Khmer Classical Ballet troupe performed ‘Apsara Mera’ in Europe in October 2010. During rehearsals at the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh, Princess Bopha Devi, the troupe’s patron and Cambodia’s former culture minister, explained how she and other teachers ‘reconstructed’ the ancient story for dance. Bopha Devi is the most prominent daughter of Norodom Sihanouk, the former king of Cambodia. VOA Khmer’s Sarita Nuch and Brian Calvert report from Phnom Penh.
