2.3 Recreating the History and Culture of Hoi An Authentically

Hoi An Memories, acclaimed as the most beautiful show in the world, not only presents impressive and artistically rich scenes but also astonishes viewers with the vivid and spectacular portrayal of the general history and, more specifically, the history of Hoi An.

Hoi An Memories unfolds on five stages, resembling chapters that come together to form a complete story:

Stage One - Lives:

Serving as the grand opening for Vietnam's most elaborate artistic performance, Lives initiates the narrative with radiant paths of light, marking the beginning of Hoi An's journey spanning hundreds of years.

The most striking highlight is the path of light, adorned with 100 women in Ao Dai, walking in curves and twists symbolizing the exploration and expansion of Vietnamese people from the North to the South along the Cai Quan road. The cries of birth in the first stage not only symbolize the birth of a new life but also represent the birth of a new land.

Stage Two - Wedding:

This stage tells the wedding story of Princess Huyen Tran and King Cham Pa Che Man. The performance not only reproduces the splendid scene of one of the most famous weddings in history but also pays homage to the unsung heroines who, in the quest for territorial expansion, fought valiantly beyond the borders. Huyen Tran princess is one such woman, who, without armor or weaponry, journeyed thousands of miles for the sake of the nation, exchanging her own life for the peace and joy of the people.

Stage Three - Lanterns and Sea:

In this third stage named Lanterns and Sea, the audience is transported to the 16th-17th century life in Hoi An. This period marked the time when Hoi An residents began venturing into the vast sea, living in harmony with it, exploiting the abundant resources of the sea while facing its ferocity.

However, Hoi An Memories, the world's most beautiful show, chooses to convey a different story in this stage. It is a love story permeated with nostalgia, sweetness, involving a young man drifting on the sea and a girl on the mainland. Every night, she releases lanterns on the Hoai River, praying for his safe return, triumphing over the storms of the open sea.

The performance illustrates precious virtues such as loyalty and deep emotion of the Vietnamese people through an emotionally rich love story. The love story serves as a snapshot of the lives of Hoi An residents as well as the Vietnamese people in the 16th-17th century.

Stage Four - Integration:

The fourth stage portrays a flourishing and prosperous Hoi An, reaching the zenith of its golden age. Hoi An in the 16th-18th century was a place where traders and vessels from all over the world converged, exchanging local products, handicrafts, and goods from the four corners of the globe. It was also a period when various foreign cultural influences were incorporated into the city, with architectural structures and cultural relics from countries like Japan and China still existing in Hoi An today.

Thanks to meticulous investment in costumes and props, the performance vividly illustrates the lifestyle and activities of foreigners at the Hoi An port during that era, full of vivid colors.

Stage Five - Ao Dai:

The national costume of Vietnam becomes the focal point that concludes Hoi An Memories, the world's most beautiful show. The colorful Ao Dai dresses traverse the bright path of light, symbolizing the transition to the modern era. In the fifth stage, Hoi An's transformation into modern times is depicted while preserving traditional elements and the essence of the national culture through traditional dances.
