The information was released at a press conference held in Hanoi on September 20 by the Vietnam Association of Stage Artists and the Hanoi Municipal Department of Culture and Sports.
The biennial festival is a major cultural event in Hanoi, aiming to create an opportunity for participating art troupes to exchange and gain experience from their colleagues, thereby improving their performance skills and creating more high-quality works to meet the increasing needs of audiences.
This year’s event will gather both State and private art troupes, including Hanoi Cheo (Vietnamese traditional opera) Theatre, Vietnam Cai Luong (Reformed Opera) Theatre, Song Viet Performance Organising Company, Sen Viet Theatre, and Le Ngoc Theatre.
The artists will bring performances to the stage that honour the national traditions as well as the land and people of Hanoi.
The festival will kick off on September 25 and wrap up on October 2 at Dai Nam Theatre, 89 Pho Hue Street, Hanoi.
