A concert themed ““An Ode to the Motherland” presenting two new art works, a symphony and a ballet, will be held at Ho Chi Minh City Opera House on May 19 by the Ho Chi Minh City Ballet Symphony Orchestra and Opera (HBSO).
The four-chapter symphony titled “The Unshakable and Heoric East – Southern Motherland” by composer Vinh Lai is an epic featuring Southern folk music and bringing profound humanity and philosophy. It shows the people’s struggles for the national liberation.
Meanwhile the ballet “The Motherland” choreographed by People Artists Ha The Dung, Luong Xuan Thanh and Ta Thuy Chi was introduced for the first time in March and received applause from the public and the critics.
The play will be performed by famed dancer Ta Thuy Chi and artists from the Experimental Theatre of the Ho Chi Minh City School of Dance.
