While the city of Bangkok faces an uncertain future with anti-government protestors still on the city streets and violent clashes becoming more and more frequent, Asiatique The Riverfront is preparing to launch ‘Muay Thai Live: The Legend Lives’.

 The show will open to the public on 30 January 2014 and will take place at The Stage, a new theatre at the heart of Asiatique The Riverfront – a relatively new night entertainment, dining, and shopping complex on the bank of the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok.

Inspired by the Thai martial art, Muay Thai, the performance reveals the history of Thai boxing which dates back 300 years to the Ayutthaya era.

Over the course of the show, the audience will witness a mysterious hero defeat champions in the Tiger in Disguise, the story inspired by the legend of the Tiger King who kick-started the golden age of Muay Thai. Amazed at the feats of Nai Kanomtom, the chained hero who faces ten fighters in the Prisoner with Eight Limbs; tremble for General Pichai who confronts armed warriors with his bare limbs in the Broken Sword; then flash forwarded to the romantic comedy of a modern-day kickboxing hero who tries to rescue his lover in the Passion Fighter.

In the final act – the Muay Thai Forever, all the cast will perform ‘Wai Kru’ a traditional dance through which Muay Thai fighters pay respect to their masters.

Mr. Thawatchai Arunyik, Governor of Tourism Authority of Thailand said, “The “Muay Thai Live – The Legend Lives” will certainly become a must-see show for tourists visiting Bangkok. The art of Muay Thai is well known around the world, and we appreciate the show’s executive producer Viwan Karnasut and director Ekachai Uekrongtham as well as all its team members and performers for bringing the life of Muay Thai legends to the stage in a new spectacular performance.”

The live show will take place nightly at 20:00 at The Stage, Asiatique The Riverfront. The theatre with seating arranged to look like a boxing stadium can accommodate 600 people at a time.

Ticket for a standard seat is 1,200 Baht and a premium seat is 1,500 Baht.

 A special promotion of Buy 1 Get 1 free ticket will be available between 30 January and 15 February, 2014.
