Non-Vietnamese speakers, especially tourists, will have a chance to enjoy Vietnamese cai luong (reformed theatre) at the Ha Noi Theatre of Cai Luong (Chuong Vang Theatre) in English.
HA NOI –
English interpretations will be available through headphones, an idea trialled last year for foreign audience members at a performance of the opera Menh De Vuong (The King's Fate), about the life of Ly Chieu Hoang (1218-78), the last empress of the Ly dynasty.
After the successful outcome last year, organisers decided to introduce cai luong to foreigners through a project which will begin next Saturday at the Ha Noi Theatre of Cai Luong, 72 Hang Bac Street, Ha Noi.
Apart from cai luong, the performance also brings a range of traditional arts such as folk songs, drama and dance to foreign audiences. VNS
