A rendition of the famous ballet “Swan Lake”, presented by Russian and Vietnamese artists is going to take place at 8:00 pm, April 4th at Hanoi Opera House, No. 1 Trang Tien Street, Hanoi. The show features Act II of the Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece, arranged by Vietnamese choreographer Kieu Ngan.
As part of the spring gala concert and ballet joined by Vietnamese and Russian performers, the ballet is part 2 of the one-night event. In part 1, concertos by Antonio Vivaldi, Felix Mendelssohn and Frederic Chopin, presented by talented artists such as conductor Mikhail Shcherbakov, pianists Irina Skobliakova, professors Tran Thu Ha and Ngo Van Thanh and violinist Bui Tri Dien, is featured.
At present, ballet remains undeveloped in Vietnam with low performance environment and limited opportunity for ballet artists to improve their skills. Ballet performance like the upcoming Swan Lake, with participation of professional performers from Russia, where ballet is highly developed, is a golden chance for both Vietnamese ballet artists and audiences in the country.
Tickets are available at Hanoi Opera House, priced from VND150,000 to 500,000.
