HA NOI – Non-Vietnamese speakers, especially tourists, will have a chance to enjoy Vietnamese cai luong (reformed theatre) at the Ha Noi Theatre of Cai Luong (Chuong Vang Theatre) in English.
English interpretations will be available through headphones, an idea trialled last year for foreign audience members at a performance of the opera Menh De Vuong (The King's Fate), about the life of Ly Chieu Hoang (1218-78), the last empress of the Ly dynasty.
After the successful outcome last year, organisers decided to introduce cai luong to foreigners through a project which will begin next Saturday at the Ha Noi Theatre of Cai Luong, 72 Hang Bac Street, Ha Noi.
Apart from cai luong, the performance also brings a range of traditional arts such as folk songs, drama and dance to foreign audiences. VNS
