“Interesting”
Review of Mintha Theater - MOVED

Mintha Theater
Attraction details
Reviewed 20 April 2014

I liked this funny little theatre. The performance had very charming moments and the costumes were impressive. The traditional orchestra were fascinating and the harpist was exceptional. I appreciate that it has been designed entirely for tourists, but I liked it anyway. In this city that I disliked immensely, it was a little escape.

We wanted to see some traditional dance but didnt want to have to attend a buffet dinner, so this was perfect. The show was only an hour, from 8.30pm, and was very reasonably priced, about $6 I think. This included about 8 dances, a guide written in English about each dance, and a bottle of water.

The Mintha Theater is very typical of what you expect of cultural art dance shows in other countries/regions. But I recommend watching this if you like traditional live shows, 'get-to-know-the-culture' or just save yourself from the boring nightlife of Mandalay (the theater is one of three 20:30 shows in the city).

It's a pity only a few people watched the show. Maybe because there is little demand for these sorts unless they involve group tours + dining (which in my past experiences get the place jam-packed). Nevertheless, they did a very good job.

We went along to the one hour evening Burmese dance show at the Mintha Theatre, which cost about $8. What a joy it was. The Theatre is an experience in itself but the dancers and the costumes were just wonderful, so colourful and beautifully put together. Not to be missed!

I'm not usually a big fan of cultural dance shows, but I really enjoyed this one. Live "orchestra" and something like 10 different dances that were interesting, colorful, and well-done. The staff is great and it all made for a very enjoyable evening. This is a good change-of-pace from temples and ruins.
