Moscow welcomes Viet Nam’s Cultural Days in a blaze of colour

MOSCOW — The Malyi theatre was the site of music, dancing and understanding, as 1,000 Russians experienced a slice of Vietnamese culture on Monday night.

The performance included traditional Vietnamese music and Hue Royal Court dances, part of the Viet Nam’s Cultural Days in Russia.

The President of the Russia-Viet Nam Friendship Association (RVFA) Evgheny Glazunov, said cultural co-operation between the two countries had been enhanced, taking the Moscow Days in Ha Noi last year and Ha Noi Days in Moscow this September as examples.

Other officials from both countries presided over the symbolic performance.

"Vietnamese artists feel very happy to perform in Moscow and other Russian cities. It is a valuable gift to our Russian friends," said Minister of Culture and Information Pham Quang Nghi.

At the opening, Nghi went on to say the Vietnamese people had always loved Russia’s art and culture and treasured its assistance in Viet Nam’s past struggle for national liberation and current national construction.

Monday was the first event in a ten-day celebration, which will also show in Kostroma, Vladimir and St. Petersburg. In addition to live shows, the Modern History Museum in Moscow is exhibiting photographs depicting Vietnamese land and people and the long-standing friendship between the two nations, and a display of ethnic minority dress.

"It is a short time to introduce a nation’s culture and art," said Russian Culture Minister Mikhail Shvydkoy, at the opening ceremony.

Despite the short duration time, he expressed his hope that the event would aptly display a country which bravely fought foreign aggressors and is currently working hard to drive back poverty and prosper.

On the catwalk 20 traditional costumes tailored by people of the E De, Dao, Mong and Ha Nhi and other minority groups strutted.

The RIA-Novosti agency carried an article, saying the Vietnamese art troupe had performed a wonderful programme, especially performances of traditional music, classical and traditional opera, and royal court dances.

Particularly, the visit to Viet Nam by President Vladimir Putin and that to Russia by General Secretary Nong Duc Manh of the Viet Nam Communist Party, have contributed to boosting the two countries’ friendship and co-operation, added the RVFA President. — VNS
