Inspired by one of the most famous and powerful works of world-renowned composer Maurice Ravel, artistic director of Shanghai Ballet Theater Xin Lili has collaborated with Le Ngoc Van to choreograph a ballet called “Bolero & Suite en Blanc” that will be staged at the Hanoi Opera House on October 17 and 18.

Choreographer Ngoc Van is expected to thoroughly exploit the creative power of the Vietnam National Opera and Ballet (VNOB) dancers to bring to the audience an aesthetic work of art.

“Bolero” is a play that shows simplicity but power from beginning to end. The audience will see the power of the artists through their simple but inspirational ballet moves.

Through these ballet moves, the audience can see the mix of different characters, naive but also provocative, thrilling but equally elegant.

VNOB will also stage the full version of “Suite en Blanc” created by Le Ngoc Van, from which a small excerpt was performed by the English National Ballet Theater in 2017.

“Suite en Blanc” is a non-plot of the script, simply showing the beauty of ballet. With solo, duo and trio performances, the group of dancers will create gentle, elegant ballet moves on the white background of the entire work with melody composed by composer Leo Delibes.

The romantic ballet shows the beauty, perfection and elegance of classical ballet language through strong and powerful body language of male and female artists.

Tickets range from VND200,000 to VND500,000 per person and can be purchased at the Hanoi Opera House or booked online at ticketvn.com.
