If you happen to be in town when this is on you should go there. While it is not a real "show" it is very interesting and you learn something about Cambodia that you would otherwise not hear about. Beat Richner is a Swiss doctor who has committed his life to the health of kids in Cambodia. He has huge... More

A highly recommended evening that showcases a remarkable Swiss doctor's commitment to the health and well- being of Cambodia's impoverished children. This awe-inspiring man has somehow been able to build five hospitals that provide Western- standard care to millions of suffering children who otherwise would go uncared for. He presents his work interspersed with melancholic cello pieces that seem to... More

Dr Beat Richter himself plays the cello, and meantime tells the story of the children's hospital. He speaks frankly not avoiding his difficult relationship with the Hun Sen regime, the hypocrisy in institutions like the WHO etc... Free, but value for money!

I have been living here for almost 6 years but never thought to visit Beatocello. I was then given the chance to go last Saturday and we watched the concert of Dr. Beat Richner. It was very inspiring to know what he has done to the Cambodian people! So, if you are traveling, this is a MUST to be included... More

This is a 45 minute film. Not a concert. Very moving and 100% worth going. Take cash to donate, as you will want to once you've seen the film and understand what the French man has done over the last 30 years for Cambodian wellbeing and medicine. Incredible!!

Dr Richner details the story of the amazing progress of bringing free quality health care to children in Cambodia. His music is moving, stories inspiring, work never ending. This man has done more for Cambodia health care for children than any other, when many said it was impossible. He has developed an incredible team of doctors nurses and cleaners and... More

Didn't get to go to the concert but we stopped by the hospital and donated blood. Such a poor country with so many children sick with things we wouldn't even worry about at home. Staff were nice and they need your donation so please stop by.

This touching and awe-inspiring performance is one of the deepest experiences we had on our trip to Cambodia. Dr. Richner is one of those rare people who don't just talk about grand humanitarian ideas - he actually realizes them: free health care for all Cambodian children through 5 hospitals with 3000+ outpatients a day. Dr. Richner's critical perspective on the... More
