Since 1956, the Vietnam National Puppetry Theatre in Hanoi has preserved the uniquely Vietnamese art of water puppetry, hosting multiple performances per week. Considered a cultural highlight in northern Vietnam, these shows combine dramatic performances by skilled puppeteers with accompaniments by a traditional Vietnamese orchestra. In order to enhance the performances and ensure superb audio quality for audiences, the National Puppetry Theatre hired Ba Sao Investment to upgrade its aging audio system with a complete end-to-end HARMAN audio solution.
