I was lucky to get ticket to the show. Theater was ok. Nothing to complain about, but it's not grand like Vienna opera house or theater colon in Buenos Aires. Despite, the theater had a charm, and the modern dance show with the bamboo stick was just amazing! A must see and great experience

Nestled in the centre of town is this splendid jewel from a past time. I've seen many shows here, over several years, and I just love the building, the Symphony orchestra, the Opera company and the Ballet company. I would love to be able to enjoy a drink during a performance, but that is not a big deal. It's easy... More

Nice architecture that you can enjoy from the outside but will have to attend a show to see inside the building.

We got tickets for AO, a great show, a sort of Vietnamese Cirque du Soleil, with Vietnamese dances etc. Lovely building and a great entertaining show. Tickets arent the cheapest but worth it.

We had finished 2 days of business meetings and planning! It was great to get a cultural break that did not feel like the usual culture stuff that you would go to. The show was unique and not expensive at all. It was a 90 minute festival of songs and dance. A very comprehensive view of Vietnam that reflected the... More

Like Opera Houses around the world, there is a certain grandeur that goes with them. This venue is conveniently located in central Ho Chi Minh City and is easy to reach. Great if you can get to see a show, or simply admire the building.

A good exterior similar to the many found in European cities, it is a pity you can’t see inside during the daytime when there is no performance. As such as a daytime tourist attraction it is very limited.

You can see the building when you step out of the hotel. There are beautiful tiles are on the floor. It doesn't look like a postoffice but a sort of hall.

We went to see a show called XO which was wonderful. The Opera house is a beautiful building, we sat on an upper level with a perfect view.
