What to Expect
Make your own way to the impressive theatre in the historical heart in Siem Reap and take your seat in the position selected at the time of booking. Hear an expectant hush descend over the audience as the curtains part to reveal a talented troupe of acrobats and dancers; marvel at the sleek agility of the performers, all of who derive from unimaginably difficult situations, and feel the melodic pulsations of the music as the show launches into life. 

Watch a spectacle that depicts Cambodian culture, history and belief unravel before your eyes and enjoy a compelling combination of acrobatics, juggling, aerial arts, contortion and dance. 

Opt to sit in standard seats or select an upgrade to enjoy a prime position in the front center rows. Also receive a complimentary beverage and gift if the upgrade is selected.
