This building is absolutely stunning. Even its setting at the end of a boulevard in the French Quarter and in a square is impressive. Too bad that we didn't get to see the inside (as we are opera buffs) but certainly the architecture is sooo grand. i found it so appropriate that there is a cafe just beside the Opera... More

This French architecture building is beautiful inside and out. The historic opera house is iconic in the city. We did not attend a performance, but did walk around it. It is located within a few minutes walk of the lake and across the street from the stock exchange. It is a great photo stop for you. It will only take... More

Make sure you check before you go to make sure they are doing tours. Luckily the man at the door was willing to show me around even though tours weren't going on. It's beautiful inside and not very time consuming.

This opera house was beautifully designed by the French, both for the exterior and the interior. Went to see a concert here with some colleague, the ticket price was quite reasonable (range from 15$ to 25$). Also the area around the Opera House is excellent for a night walk.

We were walking past this lovely hundred year old building when we noticed that there was a performance of Verdi's Requiem on at night. The best tickets were only about $25.00 US. The performance was really good and the French inspired 1911 building was atmospheric. Even if you are not really an opera lover, it is well worth the money... More

While we were not able to see a performance at the Opera House, we walked by it many times and it was a great place to people watch. Folks were always sitting on the stairs and it is an energetic location. At night, it is also a stunning place.

Nice to take photos at daytime but very wonderful during the night.Great architecture and a lovely. To be honest we weren't expecting much but as it was very reasonable priced and gave us an opportunity to see the internal space of the Opera House we gave it a shot. Impressive inside and interesting to learn some history.

Crossing the road in Hanoi is always fun but getting across the road about to get here was death defying. However, we were rewarded with amazing architecture and a wedding party !! Sadly you cannot tour the inside, which was disappointing. Also no signs to indicate this.

Next to the Hilton hotel this building is still used as the Opera House. It is set in a small but well-maintained garden. Boasts with some of the most beautiful columns in Hanoi. The bookstore in the street ending on the doorstep sells a wide variety of cook books.
