Phare- The Cambodian Circus, Siem Reap Reviews

  • This show is worth going to because it supports a worthy cause. They train disadvantaged youth and select the best few to join the performance troupe. I wouldn’t describe it as a classic “circus” - it was more like an acrobatic play of sorts. Venue: It’s a small tent, so you will be able to see the show at a good distance from any class of seats. I’d recommend category B for $28US. While the tent has fans blowing, it can get warm. However, they do provide rattan fans in case you get hot. Show: The actual complexity of the story and artistry of the show can’t be compared to the high production shows we see in first world countries (ie. Cirque) - so it’s would be fair to temper your expectations. Overall: A good night out, enthusiastic performers who give their all - at an affordable price. Usually sold out due to the small size so plan to get tickets a day in advance. Most hotels can arrange it for you.

  • One of my favourite places in the Siem Reap, if not the whole country. The performances and shows at Phare are absolutely breathtaking. They’re funny, they’re energetic and the performers are entertaining and all so talented. I guarantee that you will not regret coming to watch their amazing performance. Definitely one of the top things to do in Cambodia.

  • Don’t be scared of the price - it’s worth it! My second favorite thing in Siem Reap after the obligatory temples. Performers are incredibly talented with great energy. Great live music and a good mix of humor and jaw dropping physical ability. Not a world class show, but as good as you can ask for and a cause worth supporting.

  • To be honest, I had no idea what this place was when I went with my friends. But there’s a video explaining the background of the circus, and I was intrigued. And then the show started and my jaw dropped. It’s so creative, so inventive, so joyful, so inspiring. I enjoyed every minute of it! There’s simplicity in the production, which highlights the acrobatic skills of the performers. I appreciated the use of original music by one of the performers: music I enjoyed! Overall, wonderful experience. This is a must for all!

  • This production is put on by a Cambodian organization that trains disadvantaged youths for marketable skills in the arts. Performer's skills range from acrobatics to music to stage presence and acting. Extremely talented and fantastic to watch. This should not be missed on a trip to Siem Reap. Support of this production is highly encouraged through donation, purchase of goods or simply by attendance. It gives economic bolstering of the local economy and helps to build a thriving work environment. Coming from the USA, we normally would spend 10 times the ticket cost on a night out easily. These beautiful performers obviously work hard and train hard to accomplish what they do on stage. Very impressed!
