“A O : Explosive Performance!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

We went there to see The A O dance performance. Not being much into opera, performance art and the like I was really tagging along a group of a dozen friends and relatives. Little did I know I ended up on the edge of my seat during most of the performance. I was awe struck by so much beauty of movements, sounds, colors, creativity and most of all a thoroughly modern style of dance. Having already O D on the popular Vietnamese songs and dances I never could imagine a snippet of life in Vietnam could be retold in such an imaginative and beautiful fashion. It was a mind opening experience.

“Wow! What A Show!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

It takes a lot to impress me when it comes to dance and performance shows, but this was amazing. The dancers were incredible and the music, lighting, and performances were amazing. Truly brilliant!

“Get good seats! Show is great.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

I'm not hugely into shows, but this one was pretty interesting with an amazing portrayal of Vietnamese Culture.

Massive downside was our seats were in the top level as we booked the last 2 seats available. Once we arrived they were plastic fold outs seats that appeared to have been chucked in to make bank. Adding to this i was asked to move by a polite European girl on behalf of some non english speaking elderly ladies two rows behind us as i had blocked their view.
I agreed to swap seats, but then my view was impeded and we eventually sat on some stools to the side with one third of the stage blocked. Numerous other people were sitting on the arm rests in the back row to see down to the stage.

Show was amazing, just make sure you get some good seats. Ground floor would be my recommendation.
