On september 23th, Footprint Travel was invited to an opening performance of Lotus Water Puppet Theatre – a new stage one beside Thang Long water puppet theatre.
Opening the premiere of “Water Puppet Bong Sen” is the folk song performed by two delightful artists in traditional costume of Quan Ho. More than 300 spectators, including many foreign tourists was fascinated to a lot of excited repertoires: Teu farmer, dragon dance, unicorn play ball, dancing phoenix, frogs-fishing,…
According to our opinions, we highly appreciated this theatre. Everything seem to be so friendly to the audience: the stage is quite close to the audience, all the puppets are new & bringing the feature of traditional vietnamese culture, the artists are young and enthusiastic.
After 45 minutes of the performance, we collected some comments & evaluation by interviewing some foreigners who just enjoyed this show. Almost said they were really interested in this vietnamese art. Especially they love the way all Vietnamese artists always perform with their smiles along the show which make them have a close feeling, comfortable & enjoyful.
Here are some pictures of the performance:
After this show, we are considering to put it on our tour-program in Hanoi. It’s gonna be an highlight of the tours.
