HA NOI — More than 100 traditional costumes worn by dancers for the Nam Giao religious ritual during the Nguyen dynasty (1802-1945) have been restored.
Dancers will present the restored costumes in a Nam Giao ritual organised on April 8 as part of the Hue Festival in the central city of Hue.
The Hue Monuments Conservation Centre and researcher Trinh Bach worked together for several years to restore this valuable part of heritage from the Nguyen dynasty.
Bach, an overseas Vietnamese living in the US, came back to Viet Nam to collect and repair royal antiquities from the last dynasty in Vietnamese history. — VNS
