Mozart at Angkor 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, Australia’s premiere youth choir Gondwana Chorale 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.
