Performance of traditional dances from the different regions of Cambodia. Many dancers were killed and traditional dances banned under the Khmer Rouge. This group is working to save Cambodian arts and traditional dances while providing jobs to artists and dancers. Small intimate theater next to the National Museum. Be sure to make a reservation. There are three prices $15, $20... More

Performed at the National Museum this performance shows traditional dance styles from the different regions of Cambodia. The performers all seemed to enjoy what they were doing which added to the show. Costumes were excellent and performances were all done at a high level.

The seats are split by $15, $20, and $25... More

We had hoped the show was in the beautiful grounds of the museum, as that would have been some backdrop but its in a blacked out outside theatre in the grounds. Having said that the dancing is so amazing the setting is irrelevant. Its so sad to hear about all of the artists and dancers being murdered during the atrocities... More
