The AO show was a mixture of contemporary and traditional themes from Vietnam. The passion in their performance keep us entranced from start to finish. Both the start and finish of the show were unexpected. The use of traditional village tools added an authentic element to the performance. The really nice part was when dancers came out into the foyer... More

Great venue great show. If you need a diversion from the busy city streets this is a nice diversion. The show is people and bamboo with wonder rhythm. The opera house is beautiful.

Very nice french architecture but unfortunately we were denied a look inside despite the fact that it was open and no shows were held inside.

It's been a lovely building from the outside but inside it's not even a good opera house but it's ok so far. I'm glad that it shows nice and interesting shows and theaters.

Went to a show at the Opera House very much akin to Cirque du Soleil and it was a good show. The facilities were small but very comfortable and from my perspective everyone had an excellent view of the stage.

We stayed just a few hundred metres away from the opera house, and unfortunately were not able to look inside as it had not opened at the time we were there. Still got some great shots from the outside. A very stately and elegant building.
