Opera at Angkor

Moves are afoot to entice Italian opera singer Luciano Pavarotti to perform at Angkor

Wat.

East'N'West, an Italian cultural organization, is working with the Cambodian Ministry

of Culture and the president of the human rights group Licadho, Kek Galabru, to have

the noted tenor perform a charity concert in Siem Reap.

East'N'West representative Fabrizio Cassano said that his organization had brought

out a leading Italian photographer, Roberto Dotti, to produce an exihibition of Cambodian

photographs, to be displayed in Milan in September.

It was hoped the high-profile exhibit would inspire Pava-rotti's interest in the

project.
