Unless you live under a rock, you should be aware that four of Cambodia's finest contemporary dancers are currently strutting their stuff on stage in Madrid. This is a breakthrough first for the cream of the country's dancers, performing in world-class opera at the Teatro Real Theatre in the capital of Spain. The Fab 4 are joining forces with avant-garde director Peter Sellars, who is presenting Igor Stravinsky's melodrama Persephone for the first time. From 14-29 January for 10 performances, all 4 of Cambodia's finest - Belle, Sam Sathya, Nam Narim and Khon Chansithyka - will be showing Europe what they are capable of as part of this unique collaboration. Opening night on the 14th went swimmingly well by all accounts. Leading the way on stage in this contemporary opera will be acclaimed French actress Dominique Blanc and American tenor Paul Groves.
