Opera House is a quite good place for me to relaxing myself after the walking. It was very interesting to chat with the local there.

You can't enter without a show is played on the day so most have to spend time appreciating this building from outside. There is a café next to it and it seemed to appeal mainly to the younger groups. The structure is not well maintained though.

I love being inside for the shows. It's really a treat of the time. Make sure it get arranged in advance otherwise the entrance tickets is very costly.

It is a great building and the area surrounding is peaceful and different from the old district. Unfortunately they don't sell tickets only to visit the place and the Opera doesn't have performances until end of February. Despite this fact it is totally worthy to visit from outside.

For a quieter night out, the Opera house is a fantastic choice. It is in a more upscale part of town which is nice considering it offers some good dining choices after the show.

This very modern building is centrally located and is worth a short visit, especially since it is closely located to the lake and it is very nice wo walk around.

We stayed next door at the Hilton and the Opera House provides a good point of reference. There were concerts and military drills to practice responding to a crowd incident on the two nights we were there. It made for an interesting stay. Now, if I could only get that "hanoi" song out of my head.

Well worth a few photos if you're in the area. Don't think access is granted unless you intend on paying for a show/performance. You can shop/browse along Dong Khoi Street while you're at it.

The Hanoi Opera house stands as a cultural symbol of Hanoi.At night, you can sit on the pavement around and have some ice-tea like the Hanoian.

Great architectural achievement. Kind of retro. Needs a little more French influence- how about some signage?
