Came to the opera house for the Teh Dar show. Had a nice tour beforehand. The facilities are clean and welcoming and the show was absolutely second to none. Might not have come here just to see the opera house but with the show it was great.

Attended an amazing show in the Opera House. Very historic building and quite small. Probably seats less than 200 and not really a bad seat in the place, except near a column or two. Great place to take in a show.

The Teh Dar Performance at the Saigon Opera House was recommended by one of the guides on another tour. We decided to go along and watch the performance that afternoon. I'm so glad that we did because it was outstanding. We arrived early so that we could do the mini-tour of the Opera House, which was very interesting. Then it... More

Lovely building. If you want to get away from the tourist yobbos, this is the place to go. My wife and I were entertained by the most talented artists I've seen for a long time. Really nice

We just saw outside as the building was closed so I can't say much that architecture is interesting to observe. Subway construction is carried out nearby and distracting the visit.
