An amateur stage festival in Hanoi will be held from November 4 to 11 with the participation of 14 art troupes.
Art troupes will perform 18 short plays of tuong (classical drama), cheo (popular opera), cai luong (reformed opera) and drama. The plays praise the struggling and working tradition of Vietnamese people in the national construction and defence, reflect burning issues of the current society and good examples in the process of building a civilised and beautiful capital city.
The festival aims to preserve and develop the capital city's amateur stage movement, helping improve the cultural life of the capital people.
The festival is organised by the Hanoi Department of Culture and Information.
