HÀ NỘI — An art exchange titled October Epic will be held at the Việt Nam-Russia Culture Palace in Hà Nội on November 1.

The programme will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Russian October Revolution (1817-1917), said organisers from the People’s TV Station.

The event will include  Russian songs that have become familiar to the Vietnamese people, such as “Russia My Homeland”, “Kalinka” and a number of Russian ballet and orchestra works. They will be performed by artists from both countries, including Quang Thọ, Lan Anh, Khánh Ly and many artists from Russian art troupes.

Many local and international experts will exchange views on the history of the Russian October Revolution and Việt Nam’s August Revolution.

One such expert is Moscow radio journalist Aleksei Syunnenberg Lensov, who has made tireless efforts in collecting identities of Russian and Vietnamese Red Armies who fought for the Soviet Union during World War II. Vietnamese soldiers include Lý Nam Thanh, Lý Anh Tạo and Lý Thúc Chất from the central province of Nghệ An, who were killed during a fight against the Nazi at the Moscow gate.

Musical exchange: Fans will have a chance to enjoy singer Lan Anh to perform at the Hà Nội concert.

Apart from the programme in Hà Nội, concerts of Russian love songs will held early this November by VOH Music One in HCM City.

The programme will include renowned singers such as Trần Hiếu and Cẩm Vân.

It also aims to promote the relationship between Việt Nam and Russia and enhance communications between businesses from the two countries.

Images and music at the concerts will remind audiences of the two countries’ decades of memories and close ties, the organisers said.

Nostalgic: Singer Quang Thọ will perform at a concert in Hà Nội to celebrate the event.

Audiences will not only enjoy Russian music but also meet Russian people.

Songs to be performed will include “My Fatherland Russia”, “The Ural’s Rowan”, “Kachiusa”, “Moscow’s Suburb PM” and many others.

A Russian Culture Week will also be held from October 30 to November 5 at the theatre. The week will display paintings by Russian painters and cultural publications.

The concerts will be held on November 2, 3 and 4 at VOH Music One Theatre, 37 Nguyễn Bỉnh Khiêm, Đakao Ward, District 1, HCM City. — VNS
