Moscow (VNA) – Three Vietnamese children performed in an international opera entitled “Dream of the 21 st century” held by the Russian State Nuclear Energy Corporation (Rosatom) on August 18 at the Opera Helikon in Moscow, Russia. 

The programme was part of the “Nuclear Kids” project, an initiative of Rosantom designed for international children in an attempt to bolster friendship among offspring of those who are working in the nuclear industry in different countries worldwide, while generating creativity among the children living in the self-contained Rosatom city. 

Speaking at the event, Rosatom Communication Committee Director Sergey Novilov said the project will help to boost international ties both in economic and cultural areas.

Under the project, outstanding children of officials and staff who are working in the nuclear industry in Russia, as well as Rosatom’s overseas partners, will gather in Moscow to perform with Russian artists for a special annual art event.

The “Nuclear Kids 2016” runs from July 10 to August 21 with the participation of 53 children from Russia and 17 children from other countries, including Turkey, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Belarus, Bangladesh and Vietnam.-VNA
