HCM CITY– Veteran and young cải lương (reformed theatre) artists will perform at the HCM City Drama Theatre for a charity show this month to raise funds for poor theatre artists.
The concert, Kết Nối Thiện Tâm (Connecting with Love), will feature Meritorious Artist Tú Sương and cải lương star Kim Ngân, together with young talents from traditional art troupes.
Extracts from historical plays such as Thái Hậu Dương Vân Nga (Queen Dương Vân Nga) and Trần Quốc Toản (Young Hero Trần Quốc Toản) will be performed.
Featured performances will be staged by Sương, who has more than 30 years of experience in the theatre.
Sương has won several top prizes at national theatre festivals and competitions, including the Golden Prize for best actress at Trần Hữu Trang Awards presented by HCM City Theatre Artists’ Association in 2015.
She works for Trần Hữu Trang Theatre, one of the region’s leading traditional art troupes, and has performed as a lead actress in dozens of quality plays.
Sương and her colleagues will perform for free. All proceeds will be given to help poor artists, elderly artists and backstage workers.
The show Kết Nối Thiện Tâm will begin at 8pm on June 29. — VNS
