We wanted to see the Opera House as it is referred to as a mini version of the Opera in Paris...which is a bit of a stretch. The night that we were there the Song and Dance Company of Mozambique performed in honour of 40 years of relationship between the two countries. It was open seating so we arrived early,... More

A very overstated place. There was not much information on the House and its history, let alone see. Yet, there were still tonnes of tourists snapping photos for photos' sake.

I found the architecture of the beautiful opera and the location is great! It is in a prime area close to other tourist attractions. Near the Opera a few places that sell delicious popsicles, worth a try!

We were looking forward to going to have a look inside the opera house as the architecture is beautiful. Unfortunately we could only admire from the outside as when we asked we weren't allowed to go inside. If we had known prior we would have brought ticket to watch show!

I missed the chance to listen to some music here but next time I'm in Hanoi a trip to a concert would be on my list. The design of the building takes you back to France, well worth a walk around.

A nice building from the outside, a replica of the opera in Paris. Lovely architecture at the outside and well maintained. Couldnt go inside but from what i read its lovely and worth a visit. A landmark in Hanoi i guess..

Service was terrible, they do not know how to cook steak which I can understand in an Asian country.

They sold entry fee here but I got inside and love the Vietnamese music, the local singers sang ENglish songs in a perfect way. The architecture of the Opera House will make anyone surprised!

We spent an evening at a concert at the Opera House. A fun event. We especially loved watching the audience who attended the performance. As a regular attendee of concerts, this was not on the level of the great opera houses & concert halls of the world, but the enthusiasm of the participants was there. It was also an opportunity...

The Hanoi Opera house is a beautiful smaller replica of the Opera is Paris. Inside is equally beautiful and if you have an opportunity to attend a performance it is a must. Unfortunately it is not always easy to schedule a visit.
