OUR STORY

Since 1997, Siem Reap’s oldest Theatre contributes to the revival of Khmer Traditional Dances, and the preservation of Cambodia’s rich cultural heritage.

Built in a traditional semi-colonial style, the Apsara Theatre is imbued with a grandiose energy. From its original wooden exterior to its antique décor and marquee lights; the magic of the old theatre is alive and well.

Madam Net has been training dancers and promoting Khmer performing arts since the 1980s. Today, a troupe of 30 artists perform renditions of the ancient Reamker legends, and folk dances from rural Cambodia.

PROGRAM

On evenings, the Apsara Theatre opens its doors to showcase Cambodia’s rich cultural heritage, our traditional performing arts. Dancers, singers and musicians will perform 3 classical and 2 village dances to the music of the traditional orchestra. The performance will be preceded by a beverage service and an authentic meal.

 

  • Dinner is served at 7:30pm
  • The performance lasts from 8pm to 9:30pm
  • Starting from $29

PERFORMANCES

Classical Dances

The Reamker is a Cambodian epic poem based on the Sanskrit’s Ramayana. The traditional dances derived from it date back to ancient Angkor as extravagant displays of adoration for the gods and Khmer mythology.

Folk Dances

Village Dances are rooted in Khmer rural folklore, each corresponding to a specific fable, holiday or belief. As these dances have become rare in their village settings, their preservation today is of great importance.

The Reamker

The Apsara Theatre is also home to other events such as contemporary theatre and poetry evenings, as well as private events. To be informed of any event, please follow our social media pages. To inquire about a private event, do not hesitate to contact us
