The Road to Mozart at Angkor recounts the extraordinary journey of a seven-year collaborative project between dancers and musicians representing the great traditions of Cambodian performing arts, and European musical theatre. The story from Die Zauberflöte by Emanuel Schikaneder set to the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart shares common themes with the Reamker. The two great performative traditions are brought together on the stage in its final setting of Chau Say Tevoda Temple in the Angkor Archaeological Park with a stellar cast of singers, dancers and musicians from Europe and Asia. The Road to Mozart at Angkor gives a glimpse of the performance expressions and the artists who bring them to life and inspired the creation of the intercultural opera event Mozart at Angkor.
