Where Elephants Weep

A Khmer-American Play: Where Elephants Weep

"Where Elephants Weep": East Meets West in a New Contemporary Cambodian Opera came to Lowell in April 2007. The story focuses on a refugee from the Khmer Rouge genocide, Sam, who returns to his homeland from America. Committed to finding his roots in his native culture, he unexpectedly falls in love with Bopha, a pop-karaoke star.

The struggle between the traditional and modernity, East and West, is played out through a musical score drawing on classical western, ancient Cambodian, and popular American music traditions - against the backdrop of a beautiful land torn by war and gemocide.

"Where Elephants Weep" - a love story from a land where civil strife nearly extinguished a great ancient culture.
