The scene of Kieu (Hoang Yen) meeting Kim Trong (Duc Nhuan) during the first performance in June 2020.

The ballet won a medal at the 2021 National Dance and Music Festival in Buon Ma Thuot in June.

Hologram projection (3D stereoscopic image) was used throughout the performance. When practicing the scenes Tran Hoang Yen (as Thuy Kieu) and Kim Tuyen (as Dam Tien) had to immerse themselves in water for seven to eight hours in the middle of winter in Hanoi for the crew to record.

The work also uses traditional music genres such as Ca Tru, Xam and Tuong, and ethnic instruments like the moon lute and 16-chord zither.

'The Tale of Kieu' tells the story of a talented and beautiful young woman named Thuy Kieu who has to sell herself into marriage to save her family and is later forced into prostitution.

Over the years, Nguyen Du’s 3,254-line masterpiece has been translated into various languages and adapted into various art forms.
