Get along to Chenla...tomorrow

It's vitally important, in my view, that shows such as those being staged at the Chenla Theater tomorrow and Sunday get the audience numbers they deserve. In this case, Amrita Performing Arts and the dancers from the School of Fine Arts are putting on a newly revived performance of Khmer Classical Dance - called Preah Anurudh Preah Neang Ossa - and new pieces like these are pretty rare, so the time and effort taken in staging these shows should be rewarded. Tickets are a snip at 3,000 and 6,000 riel, performances on both days begin at 6pm and will be accompanied by a traditional pinpeat orchestra, singers and narration. I was lucky enough to see the premiere of this new work at a special staging of the dance in February and its well worth going to see. Kudos to ANZ Royal Bank for sponsoring this event.
