Princess Bopha Devi, daughter of late Cambodian king Norodom Sihanouk and director of the royal ballet, will lead her troupe to Beijing. The artists will bring authentic Cambodian dancing programs such as Cambodian Royal Dances and Cambodian Mask Dances. Cambodian singers will also sing two songs composed by Norodom Sihanouk: Missing China and China, My Second Hometown.

Known for its graceful hand gestures and stunning costumes, the royal ballet of Cambodia is a form of performing arts established in the royal courts of Cambodia for entertainment and observances such as coronations, marriages and funerals. The cultural treasure has been inscribed on the Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.
