Special concert at Angkor Wat

A special concert will held at Angkor Wat on December 5-6 with an international cast including musicians from France and Myanmar as well as Cambodia, according to a recent Facebook posting by the Minister of Information, Khieu Kanharith.

The minister said that the Royal Ballet of Cambodia, the Myanmar National Symphony Orchestra, and the French quartet L'ensemble des Equilibres will play and dance together in the concert inside the Angkor Wat temple.

The special occasion is to celebrate to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Theatre Royal Assets Intangible Heritage of Cambodia, and the 20th anniversary of Angkor Wat being listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, according to the minister.

Angkor Wat actually marked its 20th year on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites in 2012, but, due to national mourning for the death of King Father Norodom Sihanouk who played a key role in Angkor’s addition to the list, the anniversary celebrations were postponed until this year.
