I heard about the Hanoi Opera house, but only by chance I rode past it and was smitten by finding this beautiful architecture in Hanoi. Later on we managed to get tickets for a concert and the inside reflects the outside beauty, some of the seats could use an upgrade, but the set up and the acoustic plus the overall... More

Quality shows but it's very hard to get any information bout the schedule. Also the ticket price is costly

I managed to get a ticket to Carl Orff's Camina Burana, performed by soloists from Vietnam and Japan, and two or three choirs from Hanoi. The performance was amazing, and the building is gorgeous inside and out. The acoustics were great. The Highlands Coffee next door has great sandwiches and drinks with outdoor seating, which made a whole evening event.

This is our second visit to Hanoi and to the Opera House and each time it has been closed to the public - so - from the outside the Opera House is very beautiful, you can walk around the grounds and there is a terrific Highlands cafe in the garden, brilliant food and ice coffee, safe to eat and drink...

We were fortunately in hanoi while the opera house had a Tchaikovsky concert with russian conductor alexander polyanichko over for a virtnamese cultural exchange. The inside of the building is as impressive as the outside and the concert was amazing. If there is a concert on would definately recommend and it was very reasonable priced.

The imposing Opera House located on the August Revolution Square. The French colonialists built Hanoi’s opera house during the first decade of the 20th century. The Renaissance-style building was modelled on the Palais Garnier, the older of Paris’ two opera houses, and is one of the city’s architectural landmarks. Today the opera house remains active, hosting many of the most... More

We arrived here walking on a hot and humid morning from Old Quarter but other than the impressive building, there's nothing much you can do. We weren't allowed to go in as it was closed for renovation (that's what we were told by the person who seems to be the gatekeeper) and there was no proper signage or at least... More

You think you can come in and visit it freely but you can't. What a pity because the Opera House's managers should let visitors check it out and not open it only on occasion of a performance just for money... Nonetheless, it is indeed an impressive fruit of French architecture!
