Entitled Dialogue, the program is expected to convey the confrontation between classical and contemporary genres as manifested in the traditional ballet-modern dance dichotomy, choreographer Phuc Hung said.
The accompanying music will feature a combination of Western instruments such as oboe, cello, clarinet, vibraphone and dan tranh (Vietnamese zither) and other traditional string instruments.
To add more colors, short video clips recording the performance will simultaneously be played on the stage screen.
Dialogue starts at 8pm today at Ho Chi Minh City’s Opera House, 7 Cong Truong Lam Son, District 1, HCMC.
