I was truly impressed with the Opera House. The staff was fantastic and very accommodating. The show we saw was great, acrobats to perfection.

You can only really see inside when there is a show on, so check out when the shows are on in advance. We didn't realise so could only appreciate the outside. Which was nice, but really just another building.

Attended a show and just wanted to see the inside roof is stunning. The outside is even worth the visit. Beautiful architecture, very photogenic.

Attended a performance in March that was a mix of Cirque du Soleil and traditional Vietnamese. Fantastic performance that really entertained! The Opera House itself is beautiful nd worth the visit. We saw visitors dressed up for a "night at the opera", and some who had been touring the city all day. Both fit in. Tickets were reasonably priced. (We... More

A well renovated french building, try to go there at night as this landmark was illuminated by a french company (the same who worked on most of the buildings in Paris) and the result is really nice.

Saw the A O Show - lovely to see traditional Vietnamese dance and music, combined with very long bamboo poles. Terrific show. I purchased online - very easy.

Visited the Saigon Opera House for a show called The Mist. Very nicely done performance. The ballet was excellent and the theatrical way of conveying the story was superb. The place itself is amazing and this should definitely be on your list of places to visit.

We bought our tickets from a reputable seller within the HCMC post office. The building itself is lovely both inside and out. Depending on the tickets you purchase you get a choice of complimentary welcome drinks. The show itself was good, not spectacular but enjoyable never the less. There is no language barrier as the show is mostly a contemporary... More
