Dances and excerpts of Vietnamese classical drama Tuồng restored

TTH.VN - Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Hue Royal Traditional Art Theater has not been able to organize any public performances. Instead, the theater is now focusing on researching and reconstructing royal dances and excerpts from ancient Tuồng (also known as Vietnamese classical drama).

Keeping Hue tuongTuong Hue: echo from the past

Currently, the dance "Thanh Trà Pomelo offering" based on the ancient dance "Thanh Hoa chi" and some excerpts from ancient Tuồng, such as "Võ Tam Tư beheads the fox demon", "Evil hides in good" was also successfully put on by the theater.

It is expected that these dances and tuồng excerpts will be performed in the art programs of the Hue Royal Traditional Art Theater to serve the audience in the coming time.
