The fairies then punish the king by turning the prince into a hideous beast and cast a curse that he can only resume his human form with a sincere love. After that, the king hides the prince deep in the forest with some trusted servants, entrusting his life to this fate.
According to artist Tạ Duy Ánh, director of the Vietnam Circus Federation, the launch of The Curse of the Fairies is thanks to the efforts of artists from the federation to present children a meaningful gift for this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival.
“The show has a modern sound and lighting system, sophisticated costumes and a newly designed stage featuring many types of circus acts like the trapeze, acrobatics, balancing, juggling, magic and clowns. The animals featured in the show such as pigs, dogs, cats, birds, parrots and monkeys are also expected to keep the children entertained,” he said.
The Curse of the Fairies has won the hearts of many parents after it is premiere.
“I often take my children to the shopping malls during the Mid-Autumn Festival. However, I have tried taking them to the circus this year. Unexpectedly, they were so excited,” said Trần Quốc Trí, a parent from Nam Từ Liêm District.
The Curse of the Fairies will run until October 1 at Trần Nhân Tông Street. — VNS
