With a capital investment valued at more than $500.000 USD, a solid creative team, and a versatile cast, The Giang Huong musical promises to give audience a Broadway-level production.
The composition of Giang Huong musical was based on one of the most beautiful love stories in Vietnamese folk tales. Once upon a time, there was a Mandarin (court official) named Tu Thuc who met a fairy named Giang Huong. She took him to Fairyland for a life of sumptuousness. Yet he missed his home and family, thus begged her to let him visit his family. Once returned, he discovered that 300 years have passed on Earth.
Join the fantastic journey into fairy wonderland and be immersed in the emotional and fantastic love story between Tu Thuc and Giang Huong. The music, acting, comedy, choreography combined with mesmerizing stage design and visual effects promise to surprise the audience.
It is no doubt that Giang Huong musical is the first ever Broadway-styled musical of Vietnam. This feat, however, is not achievable without the casts trained in classical and graduated from the Vocal Music College – HCM City Conservatory of Music.
The Giang Huong musical brings together such beautiful singing voices as Nam Khanh (character of Tu Thuc), Hoang Kim (character of Giang Huong), Tan Dat (character of Tu Thuc), Thanh Nguyen (character of Giang Huong), Duyen Quynh (character of Ngoc Huong)… and many other famous singers.
