This old opera house is better than the sister in Saigon. It is a bit bigger with better seats. Many companies do perform at night, just ask when you arrived, you might have the luck of your life and listen to wonderful international orchestra.

This is the second place i visted in Hanoi after HoanKiem Lake. It is bigger than i imaged. But it is not luxury, it seems noone cleans it. Many rubbish on the stairs. Anw, I was excited when i came here.

This French built clone of the Paris original is well worth a visit. Europe in Asia. Much Colonial history here. Tour 2 on the low priced electric bus from the lake include the Opera House

I usually like to see a cultural show while I'm in a city and I visited the Opera House in Hanoi. I visited the Opera House in HCMC and was grateful I did because I was able to see the show, Mist. I had no such luck in Hanoi. The building itself is beautiful outside but unfortunately we weren't allowed... More

Hanoi Opera House is a worthy artistic centre, a cultural and architectural relic of the capital Hanoi. This is truly a beautiful building in Hanoi and the best place to see the Opera House is from the 6th floor of the Hanoi Hilton.

Went in last time with my son Tomy in my arms. They were recording for VTV but didnt brother about safety and us. Walked around in this classic place and went back in time. Big rooms where the visiteren and now probably governementals relax and chat and a half round seating area. Back to the old days.

No time to attend a performance but it looks very pretty from outside. Would be happy to have a chance to get back there again

We had hoped to have a tour around the opera house as there was no production when we visited. No tours - what a pity.
