A O Show is a unique blends of bamboo cirque, acrobatic acts, and theatrical visual drama. It depicts the charming beauty of Southern Vietnam lives in villages & cities, where the richness of its culture remains despite inevitable urbanization. Live music which echoes of rural work songs, scenic and lighting design makes the A O Show, which is performed at 115 Year-old historic, Saigon Opera House, worth seeing when you visit Ho Chi Minh City. One show each day, mostly at 6pm on weekdays, and at 8pm on weekends. Ticket Box at the Opera House, opens daily from 9:30 to 18:00.

We absolutely loved the show. Full on action for a whole hour. Would definitely go back. They provided big cushions for the seat for our 6 year old which meant no issues with seeing the concert at all.

I went to AO about 18 months prior and went with some friends visiting Saigon for first time - it is still as great as ever and a must-see for first time visitors. The 11 year old daughter loved the energy, fun and music.

If you have to chance to visit Saigon, you simply have to watch this show. World class level (and worth every penny). Not many things can make you feel like both crying and laughing like that. Not many things are more "Viet" than this. If this is not culture, if this is not true art, nothing else will be!

This show has a bit of everything, culture, acrobatics, music and parts to make you laugh. Show goes for around 60 minutes, but is non-stop during that time - the cast are amazing and so talented and strong! Really recommend going if you have the time while in Ho Chi Minh City.

We attended a Saturday night session and purchased the "WOW" tickets, which whilst in the front row of the Dress Circle and right in the middle, I do not think they were worth the price we paid for a one hour show (close to 1.5M VND each). Yes, it was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed it but I would suggest... More

What a fantastic show, a must see when visiting HMC, highly recommended. This was a birthday gift from my fiancée. We both enjoyed it so much. No photos were allowed which is unstandable being such a unique show, great athletic prowess by the young performers in a great interpretation of Vietnam ' s history

What an amazing way to spend an hour. Juggling, acrobatics, culture, romance and humour. A must see when in Ho Chi Minh City

An exciting mix of dance and acrobatics. The 1 hour format is perfect and there isn't really a bad seat in the house so don't stress (we had the middle rated seats and were 5 rows back from the front). Take the whole family.

This experience is a bit more expensive than the normal Vietnam fare but I do not begrudge a penny of it. The lighting, choreography, action, music, light humour and pathos had us entranced from 5 minutes in. Even our teenagers, normally deeply sceptical of anything billed as cultural, loved it. It is possible to pay a premium for WOW (VIP)... More

Just excellent, not only do you inside the wonderfully restored Opera house which is wonderfully air conditioned you get a brilliant show. I'm stuffed if I know how anyone couldn't enjoy there's no language barrier and wonderfully talented cast perform stunts and aerobatic feats. its a must do with eye candy for everyone and you can meet the cast after.
