Owner description: "Visiting Vietnam without listening to a rhythm of ca tru traditional music means that you've not discovered the real spirit of Vietnam yet." "Free yourself and get immersed in ca tru while enjoying performance by Thang Long Ca Tru Theatre. It is a voluntary, non-profit group of ca tru musicians founded in 2006. Long-time history, unique instruments, impressive music tones and meaningful song lyrics made ca tru recognized by UNESCO as the World Intangible Cutural Heritage." "This is a concert for about 70 persons held in an old temple in the old quarter of Hanoi. They are good about explaining the instruments and the history of the music. They even let you come try out the instruments. The hot tea and little cake is a nice touch at intermission" "The singers had such dear, expressive faces and sang with such intensity. The instruments were unique and had a real otherworldly quality to them and the presentation and overall performance were of a very high quality. I felt delighted, entertained and educated. Well worth going to see."-Visited wrote The show is on every Thursday and Saturday night at 8pm at 28 Hang Buom (Quan De Temple).

The musician and performers will not let you down, the show is only a hour so you'll still have time to do other things; you can buy the tickets are the door - a must see!

They pack a lot into 45 minutes - all sorts of people and animals in various environments: processions, farming, arguments, magic. Live music accompaniment with voices and exotic instruments. 6 shows a day - fun for adults and children.

Everybody can say this is simply the soul of Vietnam. Understanding it may be hard because of the language but it will be totally an amazing rhythm of Vietnam.

Went here on my last afternoon in Hanoi, a well-spent 45mins. The show is in Vietnamese but the music is mesmerising and the puppetry is beautiful and great fun. Bought the 'second-class' ticket (VND 60,000) as the first class tickets were sold out by the time I got there (half an hr before the show!) but really these seats were fine (in the back half of the theatre seating). Don't miss it!
