Russian ballet company, Talarium Et Lux will introduce performance of magnificent Tchaikovsky ballets, the immortal Swan Lake and the beloved Christmas special, The Nutcracker in Hanoi on December 3 and Ho Chi Minh City on December 1.
Swan Lake by Peter Tchaikovsky was composed in 1875–1876. It is the love story of Prince Siegfried and the Swan Princess, Odette, divided by the villainous sorcerer Rothbart in a story where true love conquers all.
The ballet is directed by People’s Artists of the former Soviet Union M. Lavrovsky.
The Nutcracker features Tchaikovsky’s lyrical score, bringing to life the magical tale of young Clara and her Nutcracker Prince and their fantastical adventures into a world where dreams come to life.
The musical performance “Nutcracker” is based on the fairy tale “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” written by E.T.A Hoffman.
The Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky turned the story into a ballet, which became one of Tchaikovsky’s most famous compositions. Perhaps ballet Nutcracker is one of the most popular ballets in the world and It is the most awaited ballet during the Christmas season and New Year. The ballet brings great moments and fun not only for children but also for the audience who love classical ballet.
The event will also include the program “I have a dream” featuring extracts from ballets and dancing performances by children dancers.
All the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the program “Thien Nhan and friends” that provides free genital reconstruction surgery to unfortunate children.
Thien Nhan is an abandoned boy whose right leg and genitals were bike by wild animals. He was abandoned by his teenage mother in a deserted garden for three days after birth in Quang Nam Province. Tran Mai Anh, a young mother of two in Ha Noi, adopted him when he was two years old. She took him to many reconstructive doctors in Vietnam and abroad for operations. Now, Nhan has a chance at being a healthy boy and studies at a primary school in the capital.
