Hanoi Opera House

Wide variety of shows

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 3.5 stars

Hanoi's majestic old Opera House, located in the French Quarter near the posh hotels, is an attraction in itself.

While Western operas are occasionally mounted here, there are also performances by visiting classical orchestras, and a whole gamut of entertainments, such as puppet shows, ballets and nights of traditional Vietnamese song and drama.

Unfortunately the website doesn’t work too well and doesn’t list schedules. But as you're unlikely to plan your trip to Vietnam around the opera house schedule (and the house is dark most of the year anyway), it's best to just show up and see what's on during your stay, or try calling.

Tickets will be delivered to your hotel for free. Prices vary, but most shows are 150,000 to 500,000 dong per ticket depending on quality of seating, and special performances may cost in the millions.
