On February 7th, three days before the start of the new lunar calendar and Year of the Snake, UNIS Vietnamese Middle/High School students community gave a magnificent Tet Performance in UNIS Theater.

The performance started with an impressive Vietnamese Tet song delivered by six talented students. They all owned amazing voices just like professional singers. The song ended in a round applause from the supportive audience.

After the splendid openings, UNIS Grade 10 Vietnamese students performed a funny and meaningful play showing how Vietnamese prepare for Tet. Having experienced 18 Tet Holidays in Vietnam, this reporter must say that this play is a very realistic demonstration of Vietnamese Tet preparation, including mostly everything from Kum Quat trees, Tet shopping, cleaning houses, cooking Banh Trung, praying ancestors and giving out Lucky Money, Li Xi. The play contained many funny features, which really did entertain UNIS audiences.

The next performance was delivered by UNIS Grade 11 Vietnamese students telling a traditional folk tales about the origin of Banh Trung. Based on the traditional contents of Hung King choosing one of his daughters to inherit the Kingdom , Grade 11 creatively modified the presentation to deliver an entertaining and joyous play. The whole theater was full of laughs and joy throughout the play.

Apart from the magnificent plays, there was also a full-of-color ‘fashion show’, presenting several Vietnamese ethnic minority costumes such as Thai ethnic and Dao ethnic costumes. The ‘fashion show’, delivered by grade 6 and 7 Vietnamese ‘models’, did a great job in demonstrating Vietnamese costume arts and cultures.

The wonderful 45-minute Tet performance ended with the song “Tet, Tet, Tet Den Roi” delivered by the whole Tet Performance’s crew.

The UNIS Tet Performance this year was extraordinary with the participation of most Vietnamese students from grade 6 to grade 11. The performance did not only create joy and laughs but also enhance international students’ understanding of Vietnamese cultures. However, the performance could have been even more splendid with more participation from the Vietnamese senior students.
