Owner description: A O Show is a Vietnamese culture show using bamboo cirque, acrobatic acts and theatrical visual drama. It depicts the charming beauty of Southern Vietnam lives in villages & cities, where the richness of its culture remains despite inevitable urbanization. Live music which echoes of rural work songs, scenic and lighting design makes the A O Show, which is performed at the National Relic Saigon Opera House built in 1898, worth seeing when you visit Ho Chi Minh City. One show each day, mostly at 6pm on weekdays, and at 8pm on weekends. Ticket Box at the Opera House, opens daily from 9:30 to 18:00.

I didn't really know what to expect by the show and was completely blown away by the amazing mix of humour and acrobatics with a play on vietnamese culture. It only lasts one hour and is a great break from the bustling city. I recommend!

I decided to buy a ticket to this show based on the TA reviews. It was nice to see the inside of the Opera House and you get tea before the show included in the price of your ticket. But to be honest, my $35 could have been better spent having three fabulous dinners instead of seeing this show.

Was it entertaining? Yes, I guess so. Was it amazing? Not really. Was it Broadway Show quality? Nope. Would I see it again? No way. Would I recommend it to others? Only if you are mesmerized by kids doing acrobatic choreographed stuff with ropes and baskets.

To be fair, the kids were talented and it kept my interest. That being said, $35 (the cheapest ticket) seemed like a lot to pay in a city where your money goes a long long way.

The performance is very nice, spectacular and professional. It combines art and gymnastic. The lighting also makes the performance more powerful. Recommend to see if you are in town.

This is absolutely one the most amazing shows that i have ever seen.

It last just over an hour, but during this time the dance crew demonstrate some great tricks, acrobatics, dance, acting, humour whilst using materials made from bamboo.

This is just entertainment at its best and this is something not to be missed when visiting Vietnam!! As i could not stop smiling due to what i had just experienced, what an amazing show A O!!!

I watched this with my friend whilst we had a few days in Saigon, the opera house was lovely and a break from the hustle and hustle outside, we had the wow seats and sat upstairs and had a great view.
The show was wonderful,the performers were all very graceful and some of their acrobatics took your breath away.
The hour seemed to whizz past, I'd def recommend this show.
