We saw the AO Show here. It was fun, interactive at times and just beautiful to see at other times. The building is architecturally interesting and the actual theatre is comfortable and well appointed.

A beautiful show in a charming opera house. The dancing examined aspects of modern life in rural and urban Vietnam. Most enjoyable

Great for a quick photo op just outside, the only times you're allowed inside are during shows at night. If you're taking a stroll around the city or on a tour, it is worth it just to stop by and take a snap before moving on. There's no signs outside from the last time I visited so you'd be best...

Great and nice building with more than 100 years and still serving its purpose well. Situated beside the continental hotel and along the town, it's a good spot to visit even if you don't plan for the show. However, I feel that the show is so worthy as both my friend and I enjoyed it so much even though we've... More

The outside architecture is spectacular. It is worth going out of your way to experience it. However, we found the entrance price to be more expensive than we had expected.

Unfortunately, we didn't have an opportunity to see an event here, but stopping by on our visit of the city was worthwhile. It was a lovely building, and it took us to a very upscale and pretty part of the city. We enjoyed seeing the architecture, and it was one of the nicer things we saw in Ho Chi Minh... More
