A fascinating French building worth a circumnavigation, and, if you are so inclined, a night at the opera (the interior being just as interesting). Capable opera orchestra.

A spend internally to gaze around, and seat that is comfortable for an uplifting functionality of the Ninth Symphony. Vietnam National Symphony Orchestra, and 3 neighborhood choirs, poked the point. The common wall of sounds in the finale drew lengthy applause. Well worth each one...More

I don't have opportunity to go inside Hanoi Opera House yet, but sitting on the pavement, watching motorbike going across is a fun, interesting experience though

It was raining but I still insisted to see the Opera House. Fascinating building. Should not miss this 1911 building structure.

Just pass by, when walking in the French Colonial district. Nice monument, quite rich in architecture. Better end of the day when the sunrise. Lights are a plus to admire this monument.

Even in case you do not like opera, you should pay a call to this particular Grand Opera House, built during the French colonial period. It needs some renovation inside, though it is still a beauty.

It is located in the middle of the city with its imposing structure and impressive facade, it is very inviting. There are a lot of people taking pictures or posing for pictures. Its a big local landmark with history worth checking out.

The Opera House was shut when we visited and also had no concerts during the handful of months when we may have gone to one. A relatively regular building, from the exterior any way, but with an impressive boulevard out front.

An architectural solution was lovely and beautifully quiet during crowded Hanoi. I've seen lots of people sitting on the stairs and also watching all pass through. Which actually is a special fun and culture of Hanoi,.. A lovely building worth to preserve the nice photos.

Hi, You can google Hanoi Opera Tickets. Or, if you are staying at a major hotel ( Sofitel is the best ) the Opera House is literally twp blocks away and you can walk there to get tickets.
