My mother and I went to the Tuong Theatre back in 2006. It was captivating! It was also a surprise to both of us when one of the actors revealed which parts of the actor's costume were puppet and which were the actor. I am...More

I enjoyed the costumes and dances and was happy to support hat tuong, a somewhat endangered item of Vietnamese culture. But although the performance is held in a small hall, microphones, amplifiers and loudspeakers of the most atrocious quality are used, quite unnecessarily, greatly diminishing...More

I really wanted to see the water puppets but didn't know what to expect. It was a bit strange but I actually really enjoyed it. It's 100,000VND and the theatre is lovely. I'd definitely recommend it. Just go with an open mind.

The Tuong Theatre performance is a step back into traditional Vietnamese music, dance, storytelling and costumes. The performance runs twice per week on Monday and Thursday nights and lasts for about an hour. It's in an easy to reach location, and is worth seeing. The...More

It's kinda a must see place, however, I didn't quite get the story as everything was in Vietnamese language. Some parts of performance were quite straight forward, but other parts would require some explanation. Performers are really talented.

You can experience the difference but in my opinion it is so boring specially for young people. Should try something else in Hanoi
