From the organizer:

Assistant staging: NSƯT | Mer. A. TRẦN HOÀNG YẾN

Giselle: Đỗ Hoàng Khang Ninh
Albert: Mer. A. Hồ Phi Điệp
Myrtha: Mer. A. Trần Hoàng Yến
Hilarion: Mer. A. Đàm Đức Nhuận
Giselle’s mother: Đỗ Thị Anh Nguyên

Giselle is one of the most extraordinary ballets ever written. It will be revived by HBSO for two performances on Friday October 21 and Saturday October 22 in the HCMC Opera House.

The first reason Giselle is extraordinary is that it is in two strongly contrasting acts. The first is a village in southern Germany in the Middle Ages, at harvest time. Giselle is a shy, innocent girl who is likely to be chosen as Harvest Queen. The second act, however, in set in an afterlife. following Giselle’s death. Almost devoid of scenery, it is instead a visual world of drifting mists and menacing ghosts anxious to recruit Giselle into their company.



HCMC-Exhibition ‘Notes on Paper'

Until Oct 27, 10 am – 07 pm (last entry is at 06:30pm), Tues – Sat,
Galerie Quỳnh, 118 Nguyen Van Thu, D1

From the organizer:

A vernacular material both in everyday life and art, paper has never ceased to inspire artists for its ubiquity, versatility, and incredible socio-historical weight – paper is synonymous with knowledge transmission and archiving. From a site where ideas could delve, paper is also a medium that evolves together with ideas as its varying sizes, textures, and thickness allow for surface and structural manipulation. Bringing together works by François Andes, Ha Manh Thang, Nguyen Huy An, Trong Gia Nguyen, Nguyen Manh Hung and Nguyen Tran Nam, ‘Notes on Paper’ highlights the kaleidoscopic nature of this unassuming material, at the same surveying the gestures that come along with it such as mark-making, painting, writing, and erasing.

From Manzi:

Manzi is proud to present ‘The Four Subjects’ – a new series of installations by visual artist Nguyễn Huy An, one of the most important figures of Vietnamese contemporary art.

For this comeback after three years (since his third solo show in Saigon), Huy An assembles an exclusive space for singular objects/relationships which would provoke an odd encounter of disparate subjects (they are essentially alien to each other and, at first sight, seemingly unfamiliar to the keen followers of Huy An’s art practices as well).
