Monday,  Oct 16,2017,20:18 (GMT+7)
The opera Fredegonde is in every way an astonishing event. It has not been performed anywhere else in the world for 122 years, since its premiere in Paris in 1895. But rather than being revived in a major operatic center such as France or Italy, it is being staged here, because Vietnam is where the composer, Camille Saint-Saens, finished writing it. A chorus of Korean children is even being taught to sing in French.
