In the 19th century, Mr. Ðào Tán developed classical theatre and opened a performing school. He also built the first classical theatre in Bình Dinh province, central Âu Lac. Since then, classical theatre has flourished in both artistic and literary aspects. Classical theatre operas are often based on historical references, highlighting moral values. Today, classical theatre is considered a traditional performing art of Âu Lac. As the Aulacese highly value morality and benevolence, our literature reflects these noble virtues. One of them is the novel “Mr. Ðô Bê,” by famous writer Khái Hung.
