Owner description: Resembling the Opéra Palais Garnier, Hanoi Opera House, built in 10 years since 1911 by two French architects. The magnificent building became one of the top landmarks in Hanoi. The Opera House hosts cultural entertaining performances, bamboo cirque, contemporary dance, orchestra concerts and government events. Come to the front gate to check availability and ticket to a performance in this iconic building.

We walked through the heat and traffic and found it. All I can say is it's big and beautiful...not much else. Walk by, take a photo and move on. Surrounded by high end designer clothing stores.

You cannot visit Hanoi without going to the opera house. Little to no opera takes place there, but a variety of classical and more modern western and Vietnamese concerts with lots of visiting international performers. Worth a visit if only to see the inside and don't forget the great 1911 restaurant built into the basement and entered from the garden side of the opera house.

Beautiful structure. Simple interior, but good acoustics.

Who cares what you see at the Opera House, just try and see inside as it is a small but perfect jewel.

Try to walk around this area to get a feel for the French influence to contrast the Old Quarter
