Phare- The Cambodian Circus, Siem Reap Reviews
The short review: excellent! I really enjoyed the evening's entertainment, it is billed as a circus and was not sure what to expect. It certainly included one traditional circus elements with acrobatics and humour but it was much more than this. There was a an underlying story told with acting, music, acrobatics and humour taking place in an imaginative set with costumes to match. Excellent production as well as performance.
Hard working artists entertained us for over an hour. We had c grade tickets but lined up from 7 pm. We were lucky and got a good seat right near the edge. The pole did block our view. B grade seats would be my suggestion. The restaurant out the front has great food but the service was very slow. 40 minutes for a plate of chips. Cooked meals came out one at time.
If you get C tickets line up early and get a good seat near the stairs. Take a cold drink or icecream in with you. There are fans which is great but still warm. The love and enthusiasm of the performance is enormous. Such an entertaining show and a great background story.
If you are in Siem Riep you must go to this show. It is a group of acrobats who perform the most amazing tricks I have ever seen. It will be one of the best 60 minutes of entertainment you will ever see. The circus is part of a school to teach disadvantaged children skills that can help earn them a living. All of the profits go back to the school so it's also a very worthy way to spend your dollars. I can not recommend Phare enough, it will be a week before the smile leaves your face.
Excellent show and environment. Troupe is made up of artists who originally came from disadvantaged social situations who have received education and training. Little stories of daily life in Cambodia translated into dance, acrobatics and song. Only an hour so you can continue to other activities afterwards as well.
