Oscar®-nominated and Emmy®Award-winning composer VÃ¢n-Ãnh VÃµ presents a new musical epic inspired by the experiences of the Vietnamese "Boat People." The Odyssey from Vietnam to Americaexplores the personal and spiritual journeys of the Boat People escaping war and reflects upon the resilience of the human spirit and the price of freedom.
Conveying stories of human transformation that resonates for all, The Odyssey utilizes the beautiful sound of traditional Vietnamese instruments and lullabies to evoke the deepest sense of comfort, calm, and strength; complimented by layers of electronic music and Western instruments to embrace the parallel experiences of people from other communities. The performances will feature musicians from VÃ¢n-Ãnh VÃµ (The VA'V) Quartet performing new music for Vietnamese and Western instruments, ambient sound, spoken word, and live media.
This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30am-1pm. If tickets remain at 1pm, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill.
