HCM CITY – A concert, opera and dance performance praising Việt Nam will take place at Bến Thành Theatre in HCM City on Saturday.
Organised by the city’s Dance School and Hồng Hạc Entertainment Company, the chamber music performance titled Tổ Quốc (Motherland) will include two parts.
The first chapter will present a concert and opera Khúc tráng ca (Epic) performed by the symphony orchestra of the HCM City Conservatory under the baton of conductor Vũ Phúc Ân.
It will feature immortal songs, including Chào Việt Nam (Hello Việt Nam) by Phạm Quỳnh Anh , Tình Ca (Love Song) by Hoàng Việt, Tổ Quốc (Motherland) by Trần Tiến, Lá đỏ (Red Leaf) by Hoàng Hiệp and Nguyễn Đình Thi, Bác đang cùng chúng cháu hành quân (Uncle Hồ Seems to March with Us) by Huy Thục, Cuộc đời vẫn đẹp sao (What a Beautiful Life!) by Phan Huỳnh Điểu, and Đất nước tình yêu (Love of Country) by Lệ Giang.
There will also be the ballet suite Tổ Quốc describing periods of national struggles.
With a script written by artist Hà Thế Dũng, choreography by Dũng and artists Tạ Thùy Chi and Lương Xuân Thành, the dance suite premiered in March 2015, making a great impression on the public and critics alike.
The work, divided into four parts, will be performed by 40 dancers of the HCM City Dance School. -- VNS
