“Gem of a theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Traditional dance and music and wonderful costumes. The music was very well played and the dancing very good. Very intimate little theatre and well worth the entrance fee.

“Vietnamese Culture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

We happened to be walking past when performances were in full swing. Very different to western entertainment but a great insight into Vietnamese culture.
You can stay as long or little as you'd like and we enjoyed what we saw.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Good quick fix of local theatre with songs and dances. The individual performances are short and colourful. You can video and take pictures although this does mean that some tourists think they can stand up in front if you for the whole performance! It takes place inside a beautiful old building that adds to the atmosphere.

“Theatre was closed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We were looking forward to this show but visited both the addresses in the guide and found no show. First place advertised nightly showing but directed us to the second address. This was closed up. Very disappointed.
