After reading the enthousiastic reviews for this show, we decited to book a ticket. We arrived at the 15th at Ho Chi Minh and booked a ticket for this date. We paid 600.000 Dong per person, I don't know why because normally it is 500.000 Dong and students get a 20% discount which we also didn't get.
Then the show: the first 10 minutes were nice, some performance of old legends of vietnam, nice stories, but simple performance. So far, so good. Then some parts of vietnamese opera classics. We didn't liked it. We actually didn't like much of the singing. Partly because we, perhaps, don't like vietnamese songs, but also because the music was too loud, which made it unclear. Then some more songs. In de end there are some musicians playing ancient instruments from different parts of the world and a performance to honour the street vendors. This was nice.
All togheter, we regret going to the theatre, because the show to us was not worth 600.000 dong. Money to burn and plenty of time? Take a look if you have no other plans. We cannot recommend this show.
