Come to a night of concert and ballet – Summer Harmony – with performances by:
Artistic Director: People’s Artist Pham Anh Phuong
Conductor: Dong Quang Vinh
Singers, orchestra, choir and dancers from the Vietnam National Opera and Ballet
Part I: Scenic cantata “CARMINA BURANA” by Carl Orff
Part II: Contemporary Dance “Death and the Maiden”
Music: Franz Schubert
Choreography: Hans Henning Paar (Germany)
Choreographer’s narrative “Death and the Maiden” has a twist unlike traditional representation with the contrast between the dark figure of death and decay, and the female body as a symbol of youth, beauty and hope. He has introduced a third figure, the lover.
In the center of the piece lies the interaction of the trio, not a violent struggle between the antagonists as they try to possess the girl, but more of a courtship dual. Death is not threatening; it oscillates between powerful and tender, beguiling and darkly comforting.
