HÀ NỘI — The Việt Nam National Opera and Ballet (VNOB) will perform classical ballet Swan Lake on an outdoor stage in Ecopark on January 11.
This is the first time a ballet has been performed on a floating stage in the middle of Swan Lake Park in the urban area in the northern province of Hưng Yên.
The full four-act ballet will enchant viewers with leading dancers Đàm Hàn Giang, Thu Huệ and Phan Lương.
The audience will enjoy an amazing experience, according to a representative of the show.
Vietnamese audiences had the chance to see the ballet for the first time in 1985 with support from Russian experts. Since then, only excerpts have been performed by Vietnamese dancers over the last 30 years.
Last year, the full version was staged by Lê Ngọc Văn to celebrate the theatre's 60th birthday. Văn is the English National Ballet First Artist.
The ballet debuted last October accompanied with an orchestra under the baton of conductor Đồng Quang Vinh.
The show is co-held by VNOB and Ecopark Group. The one-night show will begin at 7pm. Tickets are priced from VNĐ300,000 (US$13) to VNĐ1 million. — VNS
