Mozart at Angkor

A Cambodian Magic Flute

A Night at the Opera

His Majesty Norodom Sihamoni, King of Cambodia

About The Project

Under the auspicious patronage of His Majesty Norodom Sihamoni, King of Cambodia, the operatic event Mozart at Angkor  blends two stories, the Reamker and Mozart’s Magic Flute to represent a journey from darkness to light, self-discovery and the triumph of good over evil. Hailed by the BBC Music Magazine as an event not to be missed,  a stellar cast of Cambodian and international artists come together in the setting of the legendary Angkor temples for this once-in-a-lifetime production.

Dear Audience,

In light of the current pandemic situation we are assessing and adjusting preparations as changing circumstances require. At this point in time we continue to plan for November 2020 while being mindful of the possibility of postponement.

Never before has the world seen such a grand vision of joining the magnificence of Cambodian performing arts with Mozart’s opera The Magic Flute in the extraordinary setting of the Angkor Archaeological Park in Cambodia. It is with great pride and joy that I present to you the best of Cambodian talent with some of the finest operatic performers from all over the world in a new and original theatre experience that will be remembered for years to come. Stay well during these difficult times and I look forward to seeing you at the Mozart at Angkor performances.
