The opening ceremony and an art performance to mark the opening of Hue city’s water puppetry theatre has just taken place in the central city.

Apart from its cultural heritage recognized by UNESCO, the opening of the Hue ancient capital water puppetry theatre is indispensable to meet the cultural enjoyment of local people as well as tourists visiting Hue.

On the occasion, the central water puppetry theatre presented certificates to 19 artists from the water puppetry theatre that had completed a short-term training course on water puppetry.
