Some nice ideas but needs a lot of work, and quite a bit of polishing. Dissappointing, since with a decent choreographer and artistic director could be very good. Some performers are talented.

The performance by itself was excellent , you can really feel the soul of Vietnam. It is a kind of musical in original dresses. At the end near the exit, kind Vietnamese gave for everyone the present: the CD of the performance! Nowhere I see a similar guest...it was unforgettable .

It's not every day you can score front row seats to such a superb cultural experience like this at such an incredible price. We took our kids (4 & 8) and were treated to backstage visit to the cast and crew. Our kids loved sat mesmerized and fully engrossed to the last second of the show. Charming, delightful and enriching!... More

In a sentence, this was an enthralling performance of culture, music and dance that will delight adults and children alike. We arrived early, sampling candied ginger while Richard (Art Director?) treated our family to personal backstage tour which our two children (8 and 4) enjoyed immensely. We were warmly greeted by the actors and musicians, and afterwards in the lobby... More

It's a chance to discover Vietnamese culture with the magic of live theatre. The Street Symphony is one of the best performance. One of the many enchanting experiences visitors to Vietnam enjoy, is hearing the songs of the streets when street criers sing their traditional melodies and sounds to describe their services or goods. We pay homage to these people... More

Hon Viet - Soul of Vietnam is a stunning mixture of traditional Vietnamese music and dance mixed with innovative visual effects, contemporary dance and vibrant costume. When the traditional Vietnamese singers began it took my breath away, the use of the human voice as an instrument was beautiful.
