Hanoi-Piano – Tuồng “Fire” by Pho An My and Dang Tue Nguyen

Nov 29, 8 pm

Hanoi Opera House, 1 Trang Tien Street

“Fire” is a project conceived 8 years ago by two artists Pho An My and Dang Tue Nguyen. Sharing the desire of creating a new theatre language as combination between piano and Tuồng, My and musician Dang Tue Nguyen has collaborated to generate “Fire” based on Tuồng script by poet Luong Tu Duc.

The beauty and philosophical depth of Tuồng (traditional opera) has once again given pianist Phó An My and composer Đặng Tuệ Nguyên inspiration for a new and unique creative collaboration: a ”post-contemporary” work of chamber music written for the piano using the musical language and the dramaturgical materials of Tuồng, in which a modern instrument, the piano, and an ancient art, Tuồng, exist in parallel and independently, but at the same time complement and interact with each other.

The storyline of the opera is based on the script of “Ngọn lửa Hồng Sơn” (“Fire of the Red Mountain”) which was composed around the 17th century.

Ticket prices range from VND500.000- 1.000.000
