HCM CITY— A special show featuring Vietnamese theatre and music will be staged by veteran and young artists of leading art troupes in HCM City on Friday (September 2.)
The event, Tết Độc Lập- Bừng Sáng Khát Vọng (Independent Spring - Bright Desire), is part of the city’s cultural activities to celebrate the 77th anniversary of National Day (September 2, 1945-2022).
It will feature more than 50 performers in different genres of traditional theatre, such as cải lương (reformed opera) of the South and tuồng (classical drama) of the Central region.
Young talents of the Trần Hữu Trang Cải Lương Theatre will be included.
Highlighted performances will include songs and dances in praise of the country, the late President Hồ Chí Minh and soldiers.
Meritorious artists Ánh Tuyết and Cao Minh will perform revolutionary music telling the stories of Vietnamese soldiers and Heroic Mothers.
Pop stars Đan Trường and Hiền Thục will sing songs of love and youth.
“Artists of the gala Tết Độc Lập- Bừng Sáng Khát Vọng will use their art to introduce the country’s history, culture and lifestyle,” the show’s director-producer Thanh Thuý said.
“We have worked hard for several weeks and spent a lot for beautiful clothes and accessories suited to the show’s theme. Sound and light effects are also used to highlight our art,” Thuý said, adding that the show’s concept will help young audiences learn more about Vietnamese history and culture.
