The show gives you a very nice impression of the different folk dances from around Cambodia and not only the famous Apsara. They give you some explanation about each performance in English and french so it is quite educational. The performance itself is very nice and professional and of a high standard (as far as I can tell). The fact... More

A great way to experience the Cambodian culture. It was a beautiful show and very entertaining. My husband is not into dance or cultural shows and he LOVED it and he even thanked me afterwards for bringing him despite his hesitations. Please do not miss this if you are in Phnom Penh.

Exceptional performance and a worthy cause. We loved this show - the beautiful costumes, elegant dances and traditional music. A real highlight to our trip. The show lasts around 50 minutes and includes information on how the organisation is reviving the Cambodian arts across the country. Well worth the ticket cost of only $15. Doors open at 6.45pm and it's... More

When I attend performances, we are lucky to see 2 dances in one event. What a treat it was to see 5 dances; if I recall correctly. Perfect location and great showcase of classical and folk dances throughout Cambodia. A must see and affordable. Please don't forget to make a donate afterward :)

Interesting and impressive cultural show by Cambodian, the combination from the musicians, singer and dancer make the performance entertaining. The dance show last about one hour with 8 different kind of dances. Each dance has a description on how the dance originated or developed. Good effort from Cambodian to revive their culture which already being damaged during French colonial and... More

We went to see this at the end of our first day in Phnom Penh. It was a lovely way to finish after the horrors of the killing fields and genocide museum. It was great to remember Cambodia has a culture beyond the news stories that I remember from my childhood. The show lasted an hour. The dancers performed beautifully... More
