Truong Tien bridge in Hue city was lit up with fire installations by artists from French company Carabosse in the evening of April 18.

The show was considered as a highlight at the ongoing Hue Festival 2014.

Carabosse’s Director Jean-Marie Proust said fire was set on 3,000 circles and metal pots along the 115-year-old bridge the Huong (Perfume) River, along with four fire globes hung above the river plus a painting exhibition and a video display, giving spectators best visual and sound effects.

Spectators can enjoy the show once more in the evening of April 20.

The bridge and the river are typical icons of the ancient city, capital of the country in its last feudal dynasty, the Nguyen.

In the meantime, the Imperial Citadel was turned into a big stage for Latin American arts.

Brazilian band Sururu Na Roda stirred the atmosphere with melodies of samba and choro – traditional genres of their country.

At Duyet Thi Duong Royal Theatre, Argentinean artist Osvaldo Montes enchanted the audience with compositions themed “Tango in Movies”.

The programme was a combination of the sound of various musical instruments and over 20 segments of the world’s successful films produced in the past decades.

The Hue Festival is held every two years to honour the unique cultural and historical values of Hue , Vietnam and Asia through artistic shows. This year’s event will run until April 20.-VNA
