Russian culture will be introduced to the Vietnamese public in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City from October 5 to 10.

Russian cultural days are being held with cooperation between the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, Russia’s Ministry of Culture, the Russian Embassy in Vietnam, and the Russian Center of Science and Culture in Hanoi.

The country’s culture will be introduced through various activities and the event is also aimed at strengthening the bilateral relationship between Russia and Vietnam.

One of the highlights is an exhibition entitled “Nature of Northern Russia”, presenting the unique beauty of the region in the north of the country, with the White Sea’s landscapes, poetic rivers and lakes, and historical sites. They are shown in 30 pictures from photographers from the provinces of Kaluga, Murman and Kamchatka who won in an international contest entitled “Under Northerners’ Eyes”. The exhibition also aims to encourage a friendly attitude towards nature and preserve its richness and wild beauty.

A classical concert will be held with the participation of famous Russian artists, including pianist Andrey Diev and violinist Aleksey Koshvanets, and a performance staged by the Russian National Orchestra, including music from Tchaikovsky and Venyavsky.

The Russian Beryozka Choreographic Ensemble will also perform at the Hanoi Opera House on October 5 and the Vietnam National Academy of Music and the Municipal Theatre of Ho Chi Minh City on October 6, with traditional dance from Russia. Founded in 1948 by the world-renowned ballet dancer Nadezhda Nadeshdina, the ensemble has travelled to more than 80 countries and was awarded the Joliot-Curie Gold Medal by the World Peace Council in 1959.

The opening ceremony will take place on October 5 at the Hanoi Opera House.
