We "dropped in" to an afternoon performance which seems to be easy to do. The traditional music, dancing and wonderful costumes were a very nice sample of the culture of Vietnam. 30 minutes is just about the perfect length of time for Westerners who don't understand the language. The building -- traditional construction -- was perfect and an added benefit.

This was a great eye opener for us into the theatre culture of Vietnam. Love the traditional music which can be a bit severe on western ears but, we loved it. We even got to witness a short play about the Father Xmas.

Traditional dance and music and wonderful costumes. The music was very well played and the dancing very good. Very intimate little theatre and well worth the entrance fee.

We happened to be walking past when performances were in full swing. Very different to western entertainment but a great insight into Vietnamese culture.
You can stay as long or little as you'd like and we enjoyed what we saw.

Good quick fix of local theatre with songs and dances. The individual performances are short and colourful. You can video and take pictures although this does mean that some tourists think they can stand up in front if you for the whole performance! It takes place inside a beautiful old building that adds to the atmosphere.
