Meta House-Goethezentrum - a project of Cambodian German Cultural Association presents 5 concerts from 3-7 November in Phnom Penh

Shakespeare 400
Music, songs and poetry from the Renaissance
the cultural bridge between the middle ages
and modern history in Europe

This year, I am pleased to invite you to explore European Renaissance Music. The central inspirational figure - William Shakespeare - indeed influenced Drama and Music. His stage directions call for music more than 300 times,
and his plays are full of beautiful tributes to music. 
The Festival will mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death in 1616.
