We were so pleased that we managed the time to see this performance. The singing and music was lovely, and the dancing was interesting. The theatre is small so buy your tickets and go in a little early to get good seats. All seats have clear views, are comfortable and it is air-conditioned. Performance only goes for about 45 minutes, and it is worthwhile seeing. Enjoy.

The Traditional Theater in Hoi An is unlike other theaters. For one, the theater is relatively small and the viewer is able to look at the performers from fairly close quarters. This enables the viewer to discern the various movements of the performers quite closely and see for himself the intricate hand movements, the details of the costumes, the details of the jewelry and the facial expressions. The performances are a reflection of the Vietnamese culture and tradition. Not only foreigners but even locals come to enjoy the music. The locals have a tradition of listening to poetry, playing instruments, dancing and singing once a month on the main streets. Visitors to the theater would be pleasantly surprised to listen to good music from a one stringed instrument called as dan bau. One feature of the performances is the short duration unlike in other countries.

If you want to do something cultural this is it. Not my sort of thing really but we just happened to be passing at the right time and had a look. It was okay and if you like that sort of performance, you would probably really enjoy it.
