DON'T go to Battambang unless you are there when this was on.
I was in town for work and I was trying to fill my spare time with other activities - Banon, Phnom Sampov, Kampong Pouy...
I would have traded everyone just to see this performance again!
I went to the opening night of the new performance 'Eclipse'.
My only issue (and it was completely fantastic don't get me wrong!) was that the students had not practised extensively with the fire displays (fire rope) and this was obvious because several of them made mistakes.
I understand that it's a live performance and mistakes do occur. But the fact so many students (I have it on video) made these mistakes meant that they simply should not have done the performance if it is a risk to the students!
Practice a thousand times, but don't send students out without being well rehearsed - especially when it comes to fire!
But yes, a must see, absolutely beautiful display of culture and capability.
