Performance given in honour of war veterans

A performance was given at the People’s Theatre in Pyongyang on July 26 for the participants in the Seventh Conference of War Veterans.

The performance was seen by Choe Ryong Hae and Kim Tok Hun, members of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea, and other senior officials of the WPK and the DPRK government.

It was given by the artistes of the State Merited Chorus and the central art troupes.

Starting with the national anthem of the DPRK and a prelude July 27 Our Victory Day, the performers put on the stage wartime and other famous songs.

The entertainers sang in high praise of the immortal revolutionary exploits of the peerlessly great men who created the military miracles of the 20th century in the anti-imperialist revolutionary wars and glorify the ever-victorious tradition through many decades.

The audience burst into thunderous cheers when the images of President Kim Il Sung inspiring the whole country to the sacred war for defending the country through a historic radio speech and announcing the great victory of the Korean people in the venue of the military parade held in celebration of the victory in the war were screened and his recorded resounding voice sounded.

Put on the stage were different pieces singing of the spirit of devotedly guarding the leader, noble spirit of patriotism and spirit of defending the country at the cost of one’s life displayed by the generation that won victory in the war and their heroic feats.

The performance reached its climax when the orchestral music and male chorus Let Us Support Our Supreme Commander with Arms and Our Revolutionary Armed Forces Support Only the Marshal's Leadership were put on the stage, a manifestation of the highest tribute to the great Party Central Committee which has ushered in the dignified our-state-first era and built up the absolute power of socialist Korea to such an extent which no one can belittle it.

The performance ended with the finale Festival of the Great War Victory, Honour to the Victors in the Great Years and July 27 Our Victory Day in reflection of the people’s firm conviction and will to add eternal lustre to the history and tradition of proud victory of the country.
