Letter: Thanks for the images

Dear Editor,

In the name of all the artists of the Department of Performing Arts of the Ministry

of Culture and Fine Arts, I would like to thank you for the beautiful coverage you

gave our recent performances, on the back page of your December 10 issue. The two

performances that followed your paper had much larger attendance than the previous

week, which I am sure is due in large part to your coverage.

The mission of the National Theater is to revive, preserve and present all forms

of Cambodian performing arts. We have very few resources at our disposal except for

a strong conviction to revitalize our performance culture for the sake of the artists,

the general public, and our national heritage. We happily welcome the foreign community

into all of our performances. By choosing to attend these performances, foreigners

give themselves the opportunity to learn more about our rich cultural heritage, while

contributing to the sustainability of our weekend performance series, for which we

are deeply grateful.

Again, many thanks for your generous support, and we look forward to further collaboration

with your newspaper.

Professor Hang Soth, Director, Department of Performing Arts
