Thy Nga CDs

Thy Nga CDs is the second compact discs division of the company. To date, Thy Nga has produced and/or distributed over 400 compact discs. Some CD's have bonus features in it, such as a VCD addition. Thy Nga CD's is classified in a unique number system. Beginning with the first CD, the number system starts with "TNCD001". If the CD is a second-party of third-party produced, the CD is then classified into, "TNCD(party-code)00(number)". Each solo and/or duet CD is promoted in a very classy-looking poster, to be hung at stores in the Vietnamese communities. There are other CDs as well, such as "Top Hits" CD's, which are similar to the Now That's What I Call Music CD's, and is directly taken out of the Paris By Night videos. Other various-artists CD's include composer-selected CD's, which showcases different songs by a particular composer. Others include, "Tan Co" CD's, and instrumental CD's.

First-party CDs

First-party CDs operations of Thy Nga is that the CD is officially produced and distributed by Thy Nga exclusively. "Original" products can be defined by a holographic production sticker on the front cover. That is to let buyers know that the product they're buying is real and authentic. This is just one way to combat piracy. First-party CD's are classified into the "TNCD00(number)" system. To date, there are over 400 CD's that are produced and distributed by Thy Nga.

Second-party CDs

Second-party CDs operations of Thy Nga is that the CD is only distributed by Thy Nga exclusively. No other production company is involve except with the producer. Normally, the producing-company is contracted by Thy Nga, which makes it, a "second-party" company. All advertising and distributing rights belong to Thy Nga, while the producing rights belong to the second-party producer. Some devoted second-party producers include:

  • Loan Chu Music
  • Lynda Trang i Productions
  • Vũ Thnh An Productions
  • NQ Entertainment 
  • Bằng Kiều Entertainment

Normally, the second-party productions are owned by the artists and singers that are contracted by Thy Nga itself. These CD's are classified into the "TNCD(party-code)00(number)" system.

Third-party CDs

Third-party CD's operations of Thy Nga is a distribution only service. Any company that is not contracted or affiliated with Thy Nga is a third-party production. This includes the international distribution rights to products produced at Thy Nga's native country, Vietnam. Recently, Thy Nga grabbed international rights to hit-Vietnam artist, Dam Vinh Hung's latest CD, while his own company distributes at Vietnam. These CDs are classified the same way as the second-party's.

Thy Nga DVDs

Thy Nga DVDs is the DVD division of Thy Nga Productions. These DVDs includes digitally mastered sound and picture quality. Most Thy Nga DVDs are presented in a wide-screen angle format. All DVDs are mastered in either Dolby Stereo sound, or the Dolby Surround sound. Normally, major companies produce "regional" DVDs, which is either DVD-1 or DVD-2. However, Thuy Nga is an international company with headquarters in USA, Canada, France, and Australia, Thy Nga chooses to produce the DVD-9 NTSC international format, which causes major piracy problems in Thy Nga's native country, Vietnam, where it is officially banned by the communist regime, deeming them as "reactionary material", for their anti-communist position.

Paris By Night

Paris By Night is the flagship program of Thy Nga. The program contains all kinds of music genres, skit acts, and Master of Ceremony discussion. Beginning in Paris By Night 67: In San Jose, the company began producing the program on the DVD format. Which is probably a late start, since the format have been introduced recently. Since that time, Thy Nga has been remastering some of their old Paris By Night programs into the new DVD format. Thy Nga eventually stopped the production of VHS programs, beginning with Paris By Night 71: 20th Anniversary.

Paris By Night has an MSRP of about $25.00 for 2-discs of the program. The program usually features "Behind the Scenes" footage, which is very popular among fans. Paris By Night is normally about 4 to 5 hours long, all stored onto 2 discs. The DVD case itself is often stored in a beautiful cover jacket, which also helps in marketing the product. The program consists of about 20-25 songs of all genres, one comedy skit, and some added specials such as, "Tan Co", "Cai Luong". Starting Paris By Night 24: 10th Anniversary, the entire program was guided by MC's Nguyễn Ngọc Ngạn and Nguyễn Cao Kỳ Duyn. In December 2006, Thy Nga converted Paris By Night 18 from VHS to DVD. In 2006, Thy Nga released 5 Paris By Night DVDs (80, 81, 82, 83, 84). Their goal for 2007 was releasing 6 DVD's.

Karaoke

Another popular program produced by Thy Nga, includes the Paris By Night Karaoke. Thy Nga has produced more than 50 karaoke programs for Paris By Night and second-party productions. The karaoke edition of Paris By Night, normally comes about a year after the original release of the actual program. As in, the songs that are contained in the karaoke are songs and footage, directly taken out of the original program. Only difference is words are plastered on the screen, and guides the singer through, and the MC footage and comedy skits are cut out.The karaoke programs have a different number system that the Paris By Night's. The karaoke program is at about number 60 (as of early 2009). Thy Nga has no plans to reproduce old, very old, Paris By Night programs into karaoke programs. However, Thy Nga is in the process of reproducing their old karaoke programs, which are issued on Laserdisc format, into the new, DVD format. Paris by Night Karaoke is the most expensive product Thy Nga offers. With an MSRP of about $30.00, some retail stores sells them for $35.00. Fans wonder why the karaoke is much more expensive than the original Paris By Night DVD, which are 2-discs, whereas the karaoke is one disc. Despite that, the karaoke DVD's are a big hit in the community. They missed Karaoke 3,4,5,8, and 10.

Special Programs

Outside of Paris By Night and karaoke programs, Thy Nga also produces a number of specials, which includes documentary specials, "Cải Lương", a type of Vietnamese-styled country genre, and "The Best of..." programs for individual artists. There is also a "workout" DVD. Normally, these DVD's are second-party and third-party produced. However, Thy Nga does commit to producing these programs themselves, and they are very successful at it. Much of Thy Nga's very old programs back in late 80's have been remastered into the 21st century in the new DVD format.

Some documentary-musical programs include:

  • Gi Biệt Si Gn
  • Giọt Nuớc Mắt Cho Việt Nam

both are about the Vietnam War and the Fall of Saigon, and both are best-sellers.

Others include:

  • Nuớc Non Ngn Dặm Ra Đi
  • Mẹ Trong Lng Người Đi

Some second-party and third-party productions have also chose to distribute with Thy Nga, examples include:

  • Phi Nhung Productions (famous for the "Về Qu Em" series, now at number 2)
  • Lam Trường
  • Khnh Ly Productions

Comedy Programs

Thy Nga also likes to research on the growing popularity of comedy programs. However, first-party produced comedy programs are only the The Best of Paris By Night Comedy DVD volume sets. These gather all comedy skits of past Paris By Night shows and morphed them into one DVD disc. Some second-party and third-party productions are committed to produce a couple of comedy skits for Thy Nga, such as Phi Nhung Productions and Hoi Linh.

Movies and Films

Since the beginning of the Paris By Night program, Thy Nga have been gathering international rights to films produced by Lido Films, which is based back in Vietnam. They gathered a handsome amount of Lido's films. Since the deal ended, Thy Nga never got back to the film business until they decided to remaster all Lido's films into the DVD format. Now, current distribution deals are with director Victor Vu's films, which was first announced as an Asia Entertainment affiliate, one of Thy Nga's competitors, until Thy Nga snatched the deal. A notable Vietnamese director, Victor Vu has already directed and produced two films for Thy Nga, both are really popular in both the international and Vietnamese communities. Vu's films are notable winners at local film fairs. Thy Nga has not yet produced a first-party film yet, and rumors are going around that Thy Nga might one day enter the business themselves, however, nothing has been announced.

Văn Nghệ Magazines

Beginning in Paris By Night 52: Gi Từ Thế Kỷ, Thy Nga announced, Văn Nghệ Magazine. Just like its name, Văn Nghệ, which means, "entertainment arts", showcases articles on the entertainment show business. One magazine is released for every Paris By Night video released. For example, if five Paris By Night videos is released in a year, then five Văn Nghệ magazines are released in a year. Many speculators think that Thy Nga only created the magazine to advertise the upcoming, or recently released, Paris By Night video. Its Editor in Chief is L Xun Trường ( a well known musician who has written more than 60 hits for Paris By Night programs since 1995.).Văn Nghệ Magazine, contains a lot of respected writers and reviewers around the Vietnamese communities worldwide.Fans can also subscribe the magazine for $60.00 USD for 12 issues, which is about 3 years, for an estimate of 4 issues released per year.

Audio Books

In the rise of books on tape, also known as Audio Books, Thy Nga introduced Thy Nga Audio Books. A few of Thy Nga's main competitors, such as Kim Loi, have already introduced Audio Books to the Vietnamese communities already, and was a major hit. Thy Nga decided to recreate Nguyễn Ngọc Ngạn's stories into audio books. It was introduced on cassette tapes, which is no longer produced. The first audio book is a non-Nguyễn Ngọc Ngạn story, but more mainly a collection of short stories written by other Vietnamese authors. It was not until the second audio book was when Nguyễn Ngọc Ngạn was contracted to read, and contribute to the audio book program.Mainly, the author (Nguyễn Ngọc Ngạn) would include a second reader to read with him. Mainly his co-host on the Paris By Night program, Nguyễn Cao Kỳ Duyn, singer i Vn, and comedian Hồng Đo. Now, present audio books now only include Nguyen Ngoc Ngan and Hồng Đo, as they are the most favorite.From audio book number 2 to 25, all stories are mainly society short stories, and was a big hit in the communities. Beginning in audio book number 27, Thy Nga introduced the first ever, full-length audio book, with a whopping 6 cassettes on one set of audio books. Beginning in audio book number 60, Thy Nga began to produce the audio books on both CD and cassettes. In audio book number 68, Thy Nga ceased production on cassettes, and converted to CD-only. As of now, Thy Nga is in the process of converting all their old cassettes audio book programs to the new CD remastered discs. Popularity of the audio books has grown wary ever since Thy Nga ran out of stories to produce. Now, Nguyễn Ngọc Ngạn mainly contributes to his best-selling series, Việt Kiều, now (as of 2006) at number six.

Production Team

Paris By Night is a popular Vietnamese language musical variety show hosted by Nguyễn Ngọc Ngạn and Nguyễn Cao Kỳ Duyn, featuring musical performances by modern pop stars, traditional folk songs, one-act plays, and sketch comedy
Produced by an Overseas Vietnamese company Thy Nga, the series normally consists of mostly the same staff and crew. However, there are different directors for each region of where the show is filmed: currently there is Richard Valverde in Paris, and Michael Watt in North America.

Notable former directors include Alan Carter, who directed Paris By Night 90, and Kent Weed, of Paris By Nights 63, 64, 67, 68, and 71.

Controversies

Starting with Paris By Night 34: Made In Paris, Shanda Sawyer has been working as the production's main choreographer for over ten years.
As an Overseas Vietnamese production and classified as a "reactionary cultural product" by the Vietnamese government, Paris By Night cannot be legally purchased in Việt Nam, although they can be easily obtained in the black market. Performers from Vietnam who perform in Paris By Night are banned from performing on their return. It sometimes features performances that are related to historical events, critical of the ruling Vietnamese Communist Party. In 2004, in Paris By Night 74, Hoang Oanh sang a song about Operation Passage to Freedom and a video montage was shown depicting beleaguered-looking northern Vietnamese fleeing to the anti-communist south during the partition of Vietnam, where they were met by Ngo Dinh Diem and his government's officials. This performance coincided with the 50th anniversary of the migration. In 2005, Paris By Night 77 was devoted to the 30-year anniversary of the Fall of Saigon, and included songs explicitly critical of communist rule, lack of human rights, accompanied by montages of the closing stages of the Ho Chi Minh Campaign, the flight of distressed anti-communist refugees, and interpretative dancing critical of VCP ruls, such as throat-slitting gestures. It also included documentary segments on the progress of Vietnamese immigrant communities since 1975, including one segment praising American support for South Vietnam and Operation Babyliftthe communist government views the babylift of orphans as "abduction"and gave awards to Vietnamese humanitarians and American political officials who helped Vietnamese refugees, as well as the Vietnam Air Force fighter pilot Nguyen Quy An.

In Paris By Night 91, for the 40th anniversary of the Tet Offensive, one medley involved Quang Le singing about the beauty of the former Huế, backed by female dancers, before an explosion knocks them and the bridge over the Perfume River to the ground, something perpetrated by the communists during the Battle of Huế during the Tet Offensive. Khanh Ly then proceeded to sing Trinh Cong Son's "Song for dead bodies" about the communist massacre at Huế, which killed thousands. A video montage of the massacre, inconsolable relatives and the subsequent exhumation and religious reburial was shown in the background during Khanh Ly's performance.

It is also the subject of some controversies among the overseas Vietnamese population due to what some perceive as its support of the current government of Việt Nam. Paris By Night 40, with the topic of motherhood, featured a song by the composer Trịnh Cng Sơn. The song included a reenactment of a bombing during the Vietnam War and showed a mother grieving over the death of her child. Some were offended by the song's antiwar message while others see this as an indictment against American and South Vietnamese troops even though the scene did not make it clear which side was doing the bombing. After a boycott, Thy Nga reissued Paris By Night 40 with the bombing scenes removed. Ironically, Paris By Night 40 is the most commercially successful production. The director of the segment, Lưu Huỳnh, later went on to direct The White Silk Dress in Việt Nam, a film with similar themes.
