Directed by Meritorious Artist Tran Ly Ly, the first part of the event will be dedicated to classical music, featuring pieces of music by renowned composer L.V. Beethoven, under the baton of Japanese conductor Kotaro Kimura.
The pieces will be performed by artists from the VNOB’s Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, the Choir of Japan, and the Japanese Choir in Hanoi.
The second part will amuse the audience with a contemporary dance named ‘Moment’, choreographed by Nguyen Ngoc Anh and Ta Thuy Chi from Vietnam, and undertaken by 30 VNOB’s dancers.
Initiated from daily life, the piece highlights people’s concerns and burdens in life and their aspirations and hope for the future.
The show's curtains will be raised at 8 pm on June 5 and 6 at the Hanoi Opera House, 1 Trang Tien Street, Hoan Kiem district.
