I've been there twice, and both times, I was struck by how amazing the show was. They were the performances I've seen a thousand times before, but this group of artists made the dances so alive and effectively communicated the meaning of the dances, and why they were the soul of Cambodia. I've brought friends, domestic and international, and they... More

A wonderful show with lovely staff. Even my 1-year-old sat still through the performance. I appreciated the opportunity to support cultural and artistic preservation in Cambodia.

The few artists and musicians left after the genocide have passed on the traditional songs and dances, and they are beautiful. The costumes are also very impressive. This is a professional level performance in a small theatre at a very affordable... More

This was a really fun show to see. The performers and musicians are excellent, and the costumes are beautiful. It's nice to see the variety of costumes and dances they perform. The theater isn't huge, so even though we got the $20 seats I think $15 would be fine unless it's important to you to get some closer photos (then... More
