HA NOI (VNS) — Dancers from the Viet Nam National Opera and Ballet (VNOB) will perform at the Ha Noi Opera House on Thursday night.
The performance, called Sac Mau Tinh Yeu (Colours of Love), will also see the participation of VNOB's director and People's Artist Pham Anh Phuong and British conductor Graham Sutcliffe.
The first part of the performance features compositions by Ludwig van Beethoven, Wolfgang A Mozart, Charles Gounod, Erich W Korngold, Gioachino Rossini and Gaetano Donizetti.
The second part will present the Graduation Ball, a ballet performed for the first time in Sydney, Australia, 74 years ago. It is one of the first major, classical professional ballets that has been performed by many troupes worldwide.
Last year, VNOB dancers rehearsed the ballet for the first time under the guidance of renowned Australian ballet dancer Colin Peasley.
The one-act ballet will last 40 minutes and will be performed to the music of Johann Strauss. — VNS
