  • excellent

  • Amazing spectacle! Young people studying their own dance and music culture that got lost during the 60' s.
    Very good meal was included. Tourists had to get there by themselves in time... No pick-up at hotels!

  • This was such a beautiful show. I enjoyed every bit of it. The cast and crew do such a good job. A must see!

  • The performance is extremely high energy and entertaining. The information provided about the history of the troupe is also interesting. I have seen their circus troupe in Siem Riep, and though quite different, the classical performance is as energetic and enjoyable.
    However, skip the dinner. It is good enough, but for the price, one can get better at a restaurant, and there is a big time gap between the dinner time and the performance.

  • Excellent show!

  • The band of musicians and singers are excellent. The various dances like preying mantis, fishing, the great churning of the ocean by the Devas and Asuras wstched over by Vishnu, are all 10 minutes or so long and thus give the audience a range of styles and content of Cambodian traditional dance. Well worth it, good fun.

  • This was fabulous! A variety of performances suitable for all ages with a powerful background to add. This was a real highlight of our trip and I would recommend it to everyone. Never have I seen performers enjoy themselves so much - such a pleasure !

  • We were glad to book this show. The whole performance dancing, singing and music was very wonderful. We enjoyed the show very much. Thats something you shouldnt miss if you visit Cambodia.

  • This dance show was a highlight of our time spent in Phnom Penh. The student performers create an atmosphere for the audience for fall in love with a piece of Cambodia's heritage. The costumes, dances, and music are all beautiful and full of life. Simply a must see.

  • It was great to see in person what I had only seen on TV before. Amazing agility and grace of the feet and hands. Yes, I tried it in private, couldn't get even close to achieving the positions. The dexterity just wasn't there...
    It must take hours to get on all the make-up and get it looking perfect!
