In this show, the artists from Tay Do Theater performed excerpts of typical modern folk operas such as "Tô Ánh Nguyệt", "Thăng Long Soldiers" ... and other works of amateur music, Vọng cổ (which literally means "nostalgia for the past”; a form of Vietnamese folk song), tân cổ giao duyên ( a combination between modern songs and folksongs)... A large number of audience came to the theater to watch and cheer the artists for their successes.

Mr. Hong Quoc Khanh, director of the Tay Do Theater, says, “Dạ cổ Cầm Thi" show will be on the last Saturday evening of every month. Besides Tay Do Theater’s actors and actresses, other participants are from Can Tho City College of Culture and Arts, Can Tho City Theater Association, Can Tho University, etc. This show is free of charge until the end of the year. In the future, the ticket will be sold at the “symbolic” price to maintain the operation or it will be free if there is any sponsor for the show. This is an effort of Tay Do Theater in creating entertainment spots for local people and visitors to Can Tho; as well as preserving and promoting the traditional arts.

People can enjoy “Dạ cổ Cầm Thi” show at Tay Do Theater (No. 105, Tran Hung Dao Street, Ninh Kieu District) every month.
