“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

A lovely example of what a theatre should be...elegant, intimate and classic. Takes you back to a previous time. Go and see the AO show (see review).

“Beautiful place in the middle of the city.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

Once you visit Saigon or Ho Chi Minh, you feel you are in European countries but there's mix culture between the people and the architecture and very good combination. Iconic place in Saigon is Opera House which is really beautiful both day time and night time. I got chance to see the performance once and it was wonderful.

-This opera house was not bad with the classic old fashion structural.
-Went for the A O show that was running.
-Price for the tix is just reasonable.
-The theater auditorium was alright, can be well maintain for the better. -The staffs on duty are friendly.
-Complimentary drinks was upset though but can be better next time.
-Overall was satisfied with the show and the theater.

“Don't understand the point of AO”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Tickets were relatively pricey for Vietnam - $67. The welcome drink was pure sugar, totally disgusting. The show seemed like it might be cool, but didn't really grab your attention. I'm pretty sure I fell asleep for about half the show.
