Choreographed by People's Artist Vu Viet Cuong and People's Artist Kim Quy, and with music composed by Vo Dang Tin and Tran Vuong Thach, the concert is viewed as an artistic icon of HCM City.

The ballet tells the story of a beautiful and touching love story that endured the nation's historic war. Their love became the symbol of noble souls passing from generation to generation till the end of time.
