As a remake inspired by ‘The Tale of the Fisherman and the Fish’ fairy tale, the musical play gathered artists who attempted the performance for the first time, including singers Dong Hung, Trung Dung, and Thu Hien, as well as young talents.

Within 45 minutes, the play vividly recreated the aquarium world with assorted kinds of fish through a team grouping Meritorious Artist Tran Ly Ly, scriptwriter Dinh Tien Dung, stage director Vu Dinh Thang, scene painter Phung Nam Thang, chorographers Duc Viet and Ngoc Diep, and costume designer Vuong Tat Loi.

Scriptwriter Dinh Tien Dung said as a father of two children, he found that to develop a strong attachment to their children, parents should think like a child and find out what attracts their attention the most.

He expressed his belief that children will enjoy much joy and relaxation while watching and they will find themselves as characters in the play.

Joining the project as an art consultant, Director of the Department of Performing Arts, Meritorious Artist Tran Ly Ly shared that the play attracts great interest.

Inspired by a classic fairy tale, the musical is presented from a new perspective to reach children, and at the same time, integrates meaningful messages which educate children about humanity and compassion while encouraging them to realise their dreams.

In addition to delighting children with trending sayings through the storyline, the scriptwriter also raised the audience’s awareness of protecting the environment and sea life.

Following the success of two shows on June 1 and 2, the play will be brought to the stage with more than 10 shows to entertain children this summer.
