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
