Great show. Through a mix of acrobatics and dance, the AO Show tells the story of everyday life in Vietnam. An exciting and fun experience was had by myself and guests. Beautiful music played with traditional instruments topped the overall performance. Well worth seeing ;)

Great show! Professional and good length. Acrobats were fantastic. Pre-show drinks/sweets given as part of ticket price. Opera House is in central location.

Beautiful and good choreography performed by the local. Love the lighting effects which make the performance look really great and vivid. It is a combination of traditonal dancing and contemporary dance. I love the way they live the life of the Southerners, very simple, very fun and very lovely. Tips: choose WOW Ticket, a little more expensive but you will... More

Very entertaining and energetic bunch of performers. Blew us away and well worth the money! Had butterflies in my stomach at certain points when they somersaulted through the air, defying gravity. Our "Ooh" ticket came with a free drink at either of the 4 restaurants nearby. We chose L'usine, overlooking the Opera house. There was also tea served at the... More

A most brilliant, professional and entertaining performance by the local people. A well choreograph performance displaying the history of Vietnam. Lovely drink and sweet provided prior to the performance. Very inexpensive, especially for the "wow" (top) tickets. Both my husband and I loved it. We booked the day before directly at the Opera House, with no problems.

Simple staging, clever lighting with a beautiful contrast between light and shade. A mixture of upbeat group formations illustrating how integral teamwork really is. Storytelling at its best depicting the everyday lives of the Vietnamese from farmer to city dweller. Power in sound and movement, talented dancers and musicians.

This show is utterly brilliant! The skill of the young performers is mind-blowing! Their acrobatics, humour, energy, and storytelling is breathtaking to watch. The live music played is also an eclectic mix of traditional Vietnamese, along with tunes i'd happily listen to on any Ministry of Sound Chillout disc. They had a mix of chilled drum & bass that I...
