Russia’s folk dance troupe “Siberian Patterns” will come to Vietnam for a performance at the Hue Festival 2018 scheduled to take place from April 28 to May 2 in the former imperial capital of Hue in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue, the organizing committee of the festival told the Daily in an email on January 23.

Founded in 1995 by the award-winning Russian artist Irina Ovechkina, who has got the Award of the Russian Federation for her contributions to the development of Russian folk dances, the ensemble is expected to bring unique folk dances to the forthcoming festival. 

The dance troupe has earned international recognition and become a member of the international dance committee of UNESCO.

Earlier, the “Berywam” beatbox band and the “Lysistrata” rock band from France and the “Urpin” folk ensemble from Slovakia also confirmed their participation in the international-level cultural festival.

With its theme “Cultural Heritage with Integration and Development”, the 10th edition of the festival is poised to invigorate cultural exchanges with other regional and international countries and promote the image of Hue City endowed by long-established historical values and world-recognized cultural heritages to international visitors.

Held for the first time in 2000, the biennial festival serves as a large event with hundreds of outstanding cultural and tourism programs and a convergence point for different cultures around the world.

The city is pinning high hopes that the cultural event, featuring a street carnival, an international food festival and a hot air balloon show, will lure more tourists at home and abroad.

The province has set the target of wooing up to 4.2 million tourists this year, with foreigners making up 40-45%, and making VND4.2 to 4.3 trillion in tourism revenue.

Earlier, the former Hue Imperial Citadel in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue was listed as one of seven leading tourist destinations of Vietnam in 2017.
