The shows will be broadcast on both television channels and digital platforms. 

The plan is hoped to boost people’s spirits amid the COVID-19 pandemic, develop the traditional cultural values of Vietnam, and call for artists’ creativity, devotion and passion in making new works that encourage the fight against the pandemic and send messages of patriotism.

The organisation of the programmes will strictly comply with regulations on COVID-19 prevention and control.

The Ministry also called on the Vietnam Television, the VOV Television channel, Nhân Dân (People) Television, and the Hai Phong Radio and Television Station to support the broadcasting of the arts programmes.

Specifically, Vietnam Television will broadcast the programme Sắc Màu Thổ Cẩm (Brocade Colours) of the Viet Bac Folk Music and Dance Theatre; Những Người Khốn Khổ - Những Điều Muốn Nói (The Miserables - Things to Say), Hồ Thiên Nga - Sau Cánh Màn Nhung (Swan Lake - Behind the Velvet Curtain) of the Vietnam National Opera and Ballet Theatre; excerpts from the classic plays Vũ Như Tô, Othello, Aesop, The Thunderstorm, Médée of the Việt Nam Drama Theatre; Trung Thần (Loyalty) of Vietnam Tuong Theatre; Dây Tràng Hạt Diệu Kỳ (Miracle Rosary), Giai Điệu Tổ Quốc (Motherland Melodies) of Vietnam Cheo Theatre; Great Romantic Night and The Wonder of Time of Vietnam Symphony Orchestra.

Meanwhile, Nhân Dân Television, VOV Television, and Hai Phong Radio and Television will broadcast programmes performed by artists of the Viet Bac Folk Music and Dance Theatre, Vietnam Circus Federation, Vietnamese Theatre of Singing, Dance and Music, and Vietnam Contemporary Art Theatre.

 

The culture ministry's Performing Arts Department has been assigned prime responsibility and will coordinate with relevant units in establishing a group of prestigious and socially influential artists to organise the upcoming art programmes that aim to spread solidarity, unity and compassion in the fight against the pandemic.

At the same time, the culture ministry has launched a contest in which people produce various media publications like songs, short plays, pictures or photos related to the prevention and control of the COVID-19 pandemic to lift people’s spirits.

As social distancing measures are in place in many localities nationwide, the ministry has held a number of programmes to motivate citizens as well as frontline workers to battle the pandemic.

Some of them have received positive responses from the audience like Những Ngôi Sao Bất Tử (Immortal Stars), San Sẻ Yêu Thương, Vượt Qua Đại Dịch (Sharing Love, Overcoming the Pandemic) that were broadcast and streamlined on TV and social networks.
