Bac Lieu is the birthplace of a famous traditional opera piece called Da Co Hoai Lang (Awaiting One’s Husband) written by musician Cao Van Lau in the nineteenth century. The opera tells of a wife who awaits her husband’s return from the battlefield as she listens to the sounds of war drums.

At the time when Lau wrote it, his parents had forced him to leave his wife because she couldn’t bare him a son. Although the subject matter is markedly different, the song represented the composer’s emotional turmoil and love for his wife.

Tourists can visit the house where Cao Van Lau lived with his wife. There is a large bronze statue and photos of him and many of his possessions on display.
