Vietnam, Water and Puppets

Sons of Dragons and Fairies

Relevant charachters of Water Puppets Shows are Dragons and Fairies. They usually dance on the Water for the public.

All Vietnamese know by heart the story of Dragon-Fairy and consider themselves descendents of the Dragon and the Fairy.

Legend has it that, a long time ago, it was Vietnam where the Dragon Father got married with the Fairy Mother and they gave birth to 100 eggs which hatched into 100 sons. Later, 50 children followed their Dragon Father to the sea, and 50 went with the Fairy Mother to the mountain.

They became the ancestors of 54 brotherly ethnic groups in Vietnam.
