About this show

The brilliant classicism of imperial Vienna meets the mythic-poetic splendor of ancient Angkor in Pamina Devi: A Cambodian Magic Flute. In this powerful work by Sophiline Cheam Shapiro, performed by the acclaimed Khmer Arts Ensemble from Phnom Penh, Mozart's beloved opera is transformed into the refined and elaborate movement language of Cambodian classical dance and music. Cultures meld as 32 astonishing dancers, musicians, and singers depict Pamina's breathtaking efforts to transcend the rivalries and betrayals from which she is born and seek out a middle path of justice, tolerance and love.
