Prince Chakrabongse is sent by his father King Rama V to the elite Page Corps in Russia; a move that will cement diplomatic ties between Russia and Siam. In Russia the handsome prince is invited to several parties and at a ball in  St. Petersburg he meets Katya, a beautiful girl from Kiev. They fall in love. Their romance is interrupted by World War I; Katya signs up as a nurse and is sent to the front. The prince is worried about Katya… when she returns, he shares with her his dreams of Siam, and proposes marriage. Katya says yes. At first the outsider in Siam, Katya  is gradually loved and respected. The ballet incorporates elements of  Thai classical dance and is choreographed by Vasily Medvedev of the Bolshoi Theatre.

This new production will see its World Premiere in Bangkok. The Ekaterinburg Opera and Ballet Theatre is one of the oldest opera theatres in Russia. On 19 April 2017, the Theatre was awarded the Golden Mask in Moscow, recognising it as the best ballet company in Russia.
