A special art performance to celebrate 40th anniversary of the southern liberation and national unification is scheduled to be held at the Hien Luong-Ben Hai relic site in the central province of Quang Tri on April 29, said the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

Themed “Bai Ca Thong Nhat” (Reunification song), the one-hour event will highlight the national struggle with a focus on the lives of local residents along the Ben Hai River during the resistance war against American imperialists, according to the Ministry.

With outstanding artistry, the event will present and connect historic events to recreate Vietnamese revolutionary heroism. It also presents a chance to honour compatriots and soldiers who gave their lives in Quang Tri and the southern battlefields during the nation’s fierce fights against the enemy.
