A great live show with plenty of action and story. The story of people from the country to the city people. Amazing display of human strength and dance.

I went there a few times, for simply taking photographs before it and seeing the concert. The structure is quite beautiful and typical French architecture. I was fortunate to capture the Paris Symphony Orchestra once they arrived. So I can enjoy the concert and also...More

The Opera House stands in its own island in the middle of very busy traffic, but it's well worth the visit to stand back and admire the beautiful classic facade of this delightful building. Apparently being a scaled down version of the Opera Garnier in...More

The Opera House was a stop on our tour. It is at a very busy intersection. Beautiful building. Many people were in the steps taking pictures. We did not go inside but I was able to submit photos of the outside.

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.

Hi Travelhappy, Personally, I think it is a good Itinerary! You are prepared to confine yourself to Hanoi and adjacent places for virtually your whole 6 days. I think that you will greatly enjoy a trip that is not rushed, and you will walk away from VN with a very good perception of the north! "Hanoi Kids" would be worth a try, but other posters who travel more than I do to the North, will give you further help! Go and Enjoy it! plover
