HCMC – Ballet Performance “Cinderella”

Posted on

HCMC Opera House
No. 7 Lam Son Square, D.1, HCMC

From the organizer:

“Cinderella” may be the most popular ballet the Ho Chi Minh City Ballet has produced. Perhaps “The Nutcracker” rivals it, but that work is closely associated with Christmas. “Cinderella”, by contrast, is a ballet for all seasons.

And so it is that HBSO is mounting two more performances of this classic production, on April 13 and 14, in the Saigon Opera House.

The production is the work of the Norwegian director Johanne Jakhelln Constant, who originally created it as part of the Transposition program by which Norway gave assistance to classical music generally in Vietnam. Constant’s assistant choreographer for Cinderella is Nguyen Phuc Hung.

Assistant choreography: Nguyễn Phúc Hùng
Scenography & Costume design: Johanne Jakhelln Constant

Cinderella was composed by the Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev, and was first performed at Moscow’s Bolshoi Theater in November 1945.

The part of Cinderella will be performed by Tran Hoang Yen, the Prince by Fukuda Hiroya, and the Fairy Godmother by Yuki Hiroshige.

Tran Hoang Yen is a dance graduate from the Vocational Ballet School of Ho Chi Minh City and the Military University of Culture and Arts.

Fukuda Hiroya is a choreographer and dancer with the National Ballet of Japan. He will be appearing in that company’s Dance to the Future 2019 at Tokyo’s New National Theater later this month, both as choreographer and dancer. In one item, ‘Format’, he will be the choreographer as well as the only solo dancer.
