Owner description: Resembling the Opéra Palais Garnier, Hanoi Opera House, built in 10 years since 1911 by two French architects. The magnificent building became one of the top landmarks in Hanoi. The Opera House hosts cultural entertaining performances, bamboo cirque, contemporary dance, orchestra concerts and government events. Come to the front gate to check availability and ticket to a performance in this iconic building.

Nice looking opera house. Wasn't able to go inside at the time, but definitely worth the time to view even if just from the outside.

Have been there 4-5 times and always had a very enjoyable time. The building brings you back to Pre-war Europe. They have excellent performance but need to know when. If you have a change please go and see

Look out for performances as a way to enjoy this amazing building.
We were handed a leaflet near the lake advertising ballet at the Opera House on a Friday night.
Unforgettable experience!
Dont forget to visit the grand room upstairs above the foyer.

I went there several times, for just taking pictures in front of it and watching concert. The building is very beautiful and typical French architecture. I was lucky to catch Paris Symphony Orchestra when they came. So I can watch the concert and see the inside of the Opera House. The inside is not as magnificent as the outside, couple of things definitely needs refurbishment, namely the carpet. I feel that for a concert hall it's quite small and the chair is very uncomfortable. It squeak every time I move so I have to sit tight, literally during 1.5 hours concert. Once I sat near the door to the hall and I hear people, probably the staff walking around in the hall and it was quite disturbing. However, it's quite an enjoyable visit.

A legacy of the French colonisation the Opera House is very typically French although it probably hasn't had a facelift since they left.
The ABU used this very traditional location for a cocktail reception and their Festival of Song
I scored a private box and thoroughly enjoyed the entire evening
