HCM City (VNA) - A new musical Chuyen Tinh Nang Giang Huong (Love Story of Giang Huong) will debut at HCM City’s Hoa Binh Theatre from October 14-24.

The musical similar to a Broadway production, is co-produced by French director Sylvain Merille and Vietnamese director Tran Nguyen Thien Huong.

The play is based on a Vietnamese fairy tale, Tu Thuc Gap Tien (Tu Thuc Meets a Fairy). 

It is about the love between Tu Thuc, a poor man, and a fairy named Giang Huong. Both face challenges to live together. Finally, their love doesn’t have a happy ending.

“I’m interested in playing musical works. I have to work very hard to sing and dance at the same time on stage,” said Nam Khanh, one of the show’s 20 actors.

Khanh and Tan Dat will play the role of Tu Thuc, while two other artists, Hoang Kim and Thanh Nguyen, will play Giang Huong. These actors are graduates of the city’s Music Conservatory.

Chuyen Tinh Nang Giang Huong will use music by famous composers such as Van Cao, Trinh Cong Son, Pham Duy and Ngo Thuy Mien.-VNA
