Mozart at Angkor–A Cambodian Magic Flute

MAA is a symbiosis of two stories, the Cambodian Ramayana (known in Cambodia as the Reamker) and Mozart’s Magic Flute, featuring Cambodia’s finest performance artists, a pinpeat ensemble, a Mozart orchestra, an Australian youth choir and extraordinary soloists from all over the world. The flute’s magic has the power to turn sorrow to joy. It accompanies the journey of darkness to light, self-discovery and enlightenment. It celebrates the national pride of Cambodia and the revival and regeneration of the performing arts. 


Mozart at Angkor–A Cambodian Magic Flute is being presented in partnership with the APSARA National Authority, the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts of Cambodia and the Royal University of Fine Arts in Phnom Penh. It is produced by the Cambodia Film Commission and FROLIC inc..
