NDO - A national-scale ceremony and art programme entitled 'Shining epic on Dai Co Viet' will take place from April 24-27, to mark the 1050th anniversary of the establishment of Dai Co Viet, the first imperial dynasty in Vietnam.

The programme will feature profound implications, contributing to affirming the role and important values of the Dai Co Viet dynasty, the first centralised feudal state in Vietnam during the process of national construction and defence, while highlighting the role of Emperor Dinh Tien Hoang in the process of national reunification.

The art programme will see the participation of hundreds of artists and athletes from the Hanoi Vietnam Tuong Theatre, Hanoi Cheo Theatre, Ninh Binh Cheo Theatre, Viet Bac Art Troupe, Bac Ninh University of Physical Education and Sports, and others.

The highlight of the programme will be a string of 47 events to be held in Ninh Binh province to celebrate 1050 years since Dinh Bo Linh ascended to the throne and set up the Dai Co Viet State, which laid the foundations for the prosperity of many subsequent dynasties in the history of the nation.

Artist Le Quy Duong will be the general director cum screenwriter of the programme and the programme will also receive consultancy from historians Truong Dinh Tuong and Dr. Tran Dinh Ngon.

Dai Co Viet (Great Viet) was the first centralised feudal state in Vietnam which existed from 968 to 1010 AD. It was also the first capital of the country until King Ly Thai To moved the capital to Thang Long (the former name of Hanoi) in 1010.
