"Bunker of Freedom" or "Khong gian hanh phuc" (Happy space) will be presented
in Vietnamese by an international children's art troupe from Russia on Aug 17 in Hanoi.
Participants in the International Children's Summer Camp Nuclear Kids 2011 - 101 of them - from Russia, Cuba, Vietnam, India, Bulgaria, and other countries will perform the opera, which is based on a real story in Moscow in the 1980s.
The story takes place in the background of an underground bunker built in 1954 near Moscow's Taganskaya metro station. It is home to many homeless children since the site has been abandoned for years.
The kids lived happily together and supported each other as family members.
The NucKids is an annual art project of the Russian Federal Atomic Energy Agency that, since 2008, has brought together talented children of officers from different countries.
For the upcoming performance, the children have been instructed and taught by talented, experienced artists including director Elena Kiper, ballet dancer Nikita Dmitrievsky, music director Davida Todua, and choreographer Maxim Nedolechko.
The show will open at 8p.m. on Wednesday at the Au Co Arts Center, 8 Huynh Thuc Khang Street in Hanoi.
Invitation tickets can be collected at the center.
