The Mekong Artists Co has developed Hon Viet (The Soul of Viet Nam), a stage show designed to give visitors to HCM City an insight into Vietnamese history.
Featuring a mix of musical and dance styles from the northern, southern, and central regions, the 60-minute programme comprises the story of the Two Trung Sisters, the legendary shepherd on the moon, ethnic music from the three regions of Viet Nam, bamboo dance from the north-west, and modern dancing.
The audience is given an English leaflet about the show, and before each show an artist will introduce the item in English with a brief description of its meaning and content.
It is now a monthly feature at the Opera House, held on the 15th and 24th. Tickets are available at the venue at 7 Lam Son Square, District 1, and priced at VND100,000, 180,000, and 300,000.-VNS
