Two special performances of the Opera "The Child and the Spells" (L'Enfant et les Sortilèges) featuring young artists from the Children's Choir of the National Musical Theater in Paris will take place in April in Hanoi.

The Child and the Spells: A Lyric Fantasy in Two Parts, with music by Maurice Ravel to a libretto by Colette, will be performed by the theater's 12 lead singers and 65 choir members, according to a press release from the event organizer L'Espace.

The opera is Ravel's second work, written from 1917 to 1925, and was first performed in Monte Carlo in 1925 under the baton of Victor de Sabata.

After being offered the opportunity to write a musical work, Colette wrote the text in eight days. Several composers were wanted to write the music, but she only was happy with the prospect of Ravel.

Tickets, priced from VND 200,000 to 550 000, are available at the Hanoi Opera House, 1 Trang Tien Street, where the opera will take place at 8 p.m. on April 18 and 19.

The tickets can be booked at www.ticketvn.com and ticketvn@fpt.vn.
