The opera house is in the intersection so can be seen from different point of view. From anywhere it is looks nice and inviting. I wish I can watch the real opera here.

Attended the My Village performance. Excellent performance. The theater is 100 years old. Upgrades in sound and stage lighting were added but visible. The seats are old but comfortable. The whole building is old French elegance kept in good condition.

Centrally located and ever present as you drive around Hanoi. Students were on the steps taking graduation photos while happily talking. No active venue so missed out on the interiors.

Amazing Building. They have specific time slots and dates when shows are on. Make sure you check the date and time slot before going here.

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
