Hue’s Nha Nhac (Royal Music), Ca tru and Quan Ho - the three UNESCO intangible heritage values will be showcased together with other traditional artforms like “Cheo”, poem recitation, folk songs in a very special performance entitled “The Breath of Water”.
The performance depicts the love story of a young couple. A beautiful and charming girl coming from the North was recruited to be an imperial maid for the royal family. During her long and lonely boat trip to the imperial city, she agonizingly recalled the happy moments with her sweatheart. The surface of Tinh Tam Lake is like a mirror for the the girl’s memories of the past. Besides the purpose of honouring cultural heritages, “The Breath of Water” will also praise the pure and tender-hearted beauty of Vietnamese ladies in the glitz of Tinh Tam Lake.
