6 things you need to know about Giang Huong Musical

When you come to Ho Chi Minh City, don't miss out on the Giang Huong musical show. This is the first ever Broadway-styled musical in Vietnam featuring Vietnamese traditional culture

Beyond being a spellbinding adaptation of the well-known Vietnamese legend Tu Thuc – Giang Huong, the first ever Broadway-style musical of Vietnam has much more to offer than purely a touching plot.

1. A fusion of Western and Asian culture

As with any fairy tale, Tu Thuc – Giang Huong fable shares a common theme with other legends, such as The Governor of Nanke (Chinese) or The Dream of Akinosuke (Japan).  The legend is loosely inspired by life in Vietnam circa 16th century B.C, laden with traditional values and moral stories.

The modernization of the musical adds layers of complexity and breathes fresh air into this folk tale. Coupled with modern music and comedy, Giang Huong Musical is the perfect opportunity to inspire younger audience to learn about history.

2. Amazing stage light and sound effects

With a team of professionals and the usage of latest technologies to create visual and auditory effects, audiences will be treated to a glamorous art party with spectacular 3D effects on stage. Mr Sylvain Merille, who had years of experiences as a stage director of the Disney Live Show in France, is a stage consultant for Giang Huong musical. Such factors as stage effects, sound and light in the musical will also surely meet the high entertainment needs of the audience.

3. Bring together excellent singing voices  

Most of the casts in The Giang Huong musical graduated from the Vocal Music College – HCM City Conservatory of Music. They are very well-trained, professional with a beautiful voice.

The Giang Huong musical brings together such beautiful singing voices as Nam Khanh (character of Tu Thuc) – member of the AC&M band (an acapella music theme group), Hoang Kim (character of Giang Huong), Tan Dat (character of Tu Thuc), Thanh Nguyen (character of Giang Huong), Duyen Quynh (character of Ngoc Huong)… and many other famous singers.

4. Performance at The Grand Opera House of Ho Chi Minh City

The Grand Opera House of Ho Chi Minh City was built in 1898 by a French architect – Eugene Ferret, following the “flamboyant” style of the French Third Republic. Certified as a national relic in 2012, this magnificent building stays on top of the must-visit of Ho Chi Minh City.

The Grand Opera House is surrounded by a wide, tree-lined boulevard which is so oddly European that you may need to remind yourself that you are in Ho Chi Minh City, not in Paris. This is the best place to enjoy a legendary musical as well as the beauty of old-styled French architecture.

5. The Vietnam traditional culture show

The traditional culture of the ancient village in the North of Vietnam makes a major comeback in the Giang Huong musical. You will see an old scene of Vietnam with ancient village gates, green bamboo groves, happy harvest festival and other seasonal traditional festivals…

All the songs, dances and storylines are presented in a modern way but in line with Vietnamese traditional taste, introducing Vietnamese historical values and cultures to the international friends.

6. Suitable for all ages
