Classic musical by French-Russian composer in Hanoi

“L’Histoire du soldat” (the Soldier’s Tale), a classic musical by French-Russian composer Igor Stravinsky and Swiss writer Charles Ferdinand Ramuz, will be staged at Hanoi’s L’Espace on April 16 – 17 in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam-Switzerland diplomatic ties (1971-2021).

Classic musical by French-Russian composer in Hanoi

The event will be performed by musicians from the Vietnam National Symphony Orchestra and actors from the ATH Drama and Arts Space and directed by Marcelino Martin Valiente from France and conducted by Honna Tetsuji from Japan.

According to Director Valiente, the musical was a complicated and challenging project for him as he could not join other artists in the production in Vietnam but his directing had to be done virtually due to impacts of COVID-19. The premiere in Vietnam has also been postponed from October last year because of the pandemic, he said in a virtual remark at the event.

The musical features a sophisticated combination of multiple arts, from classical music, jazz, DJ, theatre to visual arts./.
