We visited here watching AO snow. This opera house was renovated due to the war The overall still look pretty and old school at the same time.

I was on a solo trip when a new friend from the trip suggested i go to a show at the opera house. Not disappointed, beautiful venue, fun and talented performers and photo op after the show.

The opera house is more impressive from the outside. Inside it has more of a school hall feel, mediocre acoustics, not very grand architecture. We got a front row seat stage right - the cheapest price bracket- to watch the AO show. A few minutes...More

Fabulous! Stunningly good show, brilliant fast moving, acrobatics and story telling. Well worth the money. Go for the best seats in the circle.

Loved the AO show by the young and super talented artists of Vietnam! If you're someone who enjoys art and culture, highly recommend to watch the show. The other performances at the venue are carefully selected and great too!

Absolutely worth visiting for a glimpse into Saigon's colonial past in terms of the design aesthetic. A lovely place to spend some time.

We went to see the AO show, it was so good and there was a guided tour before hand so we saw the opera and saw an amazing performance. It is definitely worth it if you go to see a show.

Nice area to visit and it lights up in the evening so it’s nice to take photos then. Try to be safe with cameras and phones as there are many motorcyclists and they can quickly grab and go.

We saw a man with a jacket, many in shorts, but all with footwear and no g-strings. Unless you perform in a circus show.
