HÀ NỘI - Musical Les Miserables will be performed by the Việt Nam National Opera & Ballet (VNOB) at Hà Nội Opera House on September 29-30.

Les Miserables is one of the most famous of all French musicals and one of the most performed musicals worldwide.

VNOB debuted the musical in 2020 and it has been highly appreciated by artists and art lovers.

After ten sold-out shows in Hà Nội, Đắc Lắc Province and HCM City last year, VNOB will bring back the musical to charm audiences with performances by award-winning artists.

The musical won 14 awards at the National Music and Dance Festival in Hải Phòng City including three gold medals for Bùi Thị Trang, Trần Thu Trang and Phạm Thị Hương and the best actor title for Trịnh Thanh Bình.

Soprano Bùi Thị Trang and tenor Bình act in the roles of Fantine and Jean Valjean.

Performances of the musical will come under the baton of conductor Đồng Quang Vinh. The familiar melody associated with the fate of the characters will be performed by well-known Vietnamese artists such as Đào Tố Loan, Nguyễn Huy Đức, Trịnh Thanh Bình, Thế Tùng Lâm, and Anh Vũ.

Bariton Nguyễn Huy Đức plays inspector Javert.

The musical is adapted from the novel of the same name by the great writer Victor Hugo. In order to keep the spirit of the classic, Les Miserables will be performed in English with Vietnamese subtitles on a LED screen.

The artists will be accompanied by live music under conductor Vinh with music by Claude-Michel Schonberg and English lyrics by Herbert Kretzme.

The show will feature more than 150 artists, actors and crew members. It will also have the participation of the international choir Hanoi Voices and performers from various countries.

The shows will begin at 8pm at Hà Nội Opera House. Tickets can be purchased at https://nhahatnhacvukichvietnam.com/en/ve-ban/. — VNS
