Hanoi Opera House
Hanoi Opera House is one of colonial Hanoi’s most iconic edifices, and obviously one of the best Hanoi points of interest the Hanoi Opera House was built by the French in the first decade of the 20th Century as an Indochinese twin to Paris’s largest opera house. Today it hosts traditional and modern performances by Vietnamese and international musicians and dancers and is home to the Vietnamese National Opera and Ballet. Public tours are not offered—only ticket-holding guests can enjoy the ornate architecture inside. You’ll find an English-language performance schedule on the opera house’s official website.
