Thais are only able to see Nang Yai on very special occasions," Mr Vira said. On May 24, there will be a Thai folk song festival performed by hundreds of musicians, and choral singers on the main stage. On May 26, there will be an operetta titled Pasanjaipak Jongraknarubordee (United Hearts in Reverence of the King) on the main stage. The puppets used in Nang Yai are made from cowhide, and can be as large as two metres tall and one metre wide. "Traditional Thai performances are rarely seen these days, so this event is a great opportunity for the public to witness them live," Mr Vira said.
