At the heart of the "Old Quarter" stands the beautiful "Hanoi Opera House"! It was built around 1911 and modeled after Paris' "Opéra Garnier", with clear characteristics of French neoclassical architecture and also with gothic pillars and domes. It is certainly a Hanoi landmark! It was renovated in 1977 to its full glory and is absolutely magnicent! From its 600 seats, one can enjoy spectacles as Vietnamese operas, ballets, as well as traditional folk music and international concerts. Check its programme, buy a ticket and visit also its interior! Enjoy!

To enter it properly preserved Opera House brought goosebumps understanding the past and story behind Saigon! I was at first reluctant to look at though I completely got the moneys worth of mine. The entire idea is very exclusive as well as the performers were spectacular!!! It absolutely was a very first for me to enjoy this show type in which every single sound was created by the performers themselves. Really incredible and should not be missed when in Vietnam. When provided the opportunity going again, I am going to go through the entire experience again,

I'd the lucky chance to find a performance in the Opera House in the regrettable time of the Trump Kim Summit. Evidently, the sole method to see the inside of the Opera House is going to a performance. The performance was terrific, and the Opera House is a lovely structure, though the visitors from road closures and security was outrageous. Fortunately, these events types are rare. General, however, the Opera House was enjoyable to check out and also attend a show in, though I want there'd were a chance for the capability or a trip to walk around the structure with no restriction.

Nice classic old building. Beautiful staircases and theatre hall.
But the stage is too small for modern ballet / dance pieces.
Also there is no room to get refreshment in the pause of the show.
There is only a water bottle selling machine at the entrance.

But the big Swan Lake ballet and orchestra were great.
It was good to see that a lot of Vietnamese children were attending the ballet also.

If you have enough time in Hanoi it's a good opportunity to experience another side of Hanoi's cultural posibilities.

Its incredible! A great blend between contemporary show and Vietnam tradition. Music that is live is played with standard instruments however in a contemporary way. They explain to you the Vietnam identity in an extremely specific manner. You are able to observe poetry in the little materials they use, the styles they select, so the manner they normally use lights... I enjoyed it.

The Opera House is in the centre of Hanoi and so big and imposing amongst its surroundings it can't be missed . French architecture I believe and built in the 1900's. Lovely spacious foyer and comfortable seating. Tickets can be booked on line

Although I was unable to go inside as it was early evening and people were arriving for a concert I was able to see the façade illuminated and it look magnificent. It is so like its Paris counterpart. I was only sorry I couldn't go inside.

I was invited to a conference in Hanoi Opera House. My first impression was the French colony’s architecture of the building from the outside to the inside. Really amazing. The music performed by the disabled students was also really great and impressive. I will come back soon to see more shows.

Yup...the Opera House is so similar to the Paris Opera House (just smaller!) that for a second you just think that you are in Paris.
Is a beautiful building that, luckily, has been spared all the communist propaganda of festoon and written notices on its front so that you can enjoy the lines of the architecture of the building.

The show was an entertaining and nice experience with insights to Current life and vietnamese culture too. Easy to look at, not very long and appropriate perhaps for families and kids. Prior to the show, we participated in a brief (10min) trip to find out about the story of the structure. Excellent experience as an entire for me personally, the husband of mine and the older mom of mine, could happily recommend.
