    The Voice of HCM City People (VOH) radio station plans to open a new opera house called Music One this month.

    The Music One opera house, which is an upgraded version of the old VOH hall, will feature 350 seats with a brand-new lighting and music system.

    The lobby, which has been redecorated in a cozy, elegant style, will be used for musical exhibitions.

    The opera house will stage musicals, plays, and performances of đờn ca tài tử (southern folk music) and cải lương (reformed opera), Nguyễn Trọng Trí, deputy director of VOH, said.

    “The plan to open the opera house has been on the table for many years, with the aim of building a standard music space where artists can perform and bring the light of theatre and VOH to the public, so they can better appreciate artistic values,” he added.

    Musician Đức Thịnh, director of Music One, said that, apart from serving traditional musical performances, the opera house would hold music festivals, singing competitions and other music programmes that engage listeners via radio and social media.

    VOH will hold a special musical night to celebrate the launch of Music One opera house on July 15.

      Vietnam Renews India Oil Deal in Tense South China Sea

      Vietnam has extended an Indian oil concession in the South China Sea and begun drilling in another area it disputes with China in moves that could heighten tensions over who owns what in the vital maritime region.
      The moves come at a delicate time in Beijing's relations with Vietnam, which claims parts of the sea, and India, which recently sent warships to monitor the Malacca Straits, through which most of China's energy supplies and trade passes.
      Vietnam granted Indian oil firm ONGC Videsh a two-year extension to explore oil block 128 in a letter that arrived earlier this week, the state-run company's managing director Narendra K. Verma told Reuters.
      Part of that block is in the U-shaped 'nine-dash line' which marks the vast area that China claims in the sea, a route for more than $5 trillion in trade each year in which the Philippines, Brunei, Malaysia and Taiwan also have claims.
