Attended a performance on January 11, 2018 and sat in row “J”. The seat was angled down toward the floor a bit and I tried to hold it level throughout the performance. I would never go back.

We got tickets for the show "My Village" at the Hanoi Opera House during our stay. While the show lasted only just over an hour, it was worth the price of our tickets. The young performers were talented, polished and full of energy and enthusiasm....More

This is a 50% size version of the Opera in Paris, put up by the French during their 100 years as colonial power. It has the expected nostalgic effect, complete with the 'loges' of the past. On an earlier visit, I saw the "Nutcracker" ballet,...More

The building is in the French colonial style, and really beautiful. The theatre area is luxurious with velvet seating and beautiful high ceilings. The My Village show is interesting with incredible acrobatics and interesting use of props, but the story can be hard to follow....More

Though I did not get inside the day of my visit, the architecture is wonderful. Brides and their grooms were using the Opera as a backdrop for their wedding day photos.

So its hard to remove the show you saw from just the building, and honestly, we saw very little of the building, but what we saw inside and out was very impressive. Its much smaller than I expected it to be, but it has charm....More

I think you have to go to a show but there is a bar so maybe during show times you will get in. Hope this helps. Others enjoyed the show we didn't rate it.

We went to the Opera and the dress code was relaxed which was a relief. Smart casual is fine (I only had black jeans and a shirt as we are on holiday from the UK and that was fine). If you wanted to dress up more then you... More
