Hanoi’s majestic old Opera House, located in the French Quarter, is an attraction in itself. While Western operas are occasionally mounted here, there are also performances by visiting classical orchestras, and a whole gamut of entertainments, such as puppet shows, ballets, and nights of traditional Vietnamese song and drama.
Hanoi Opera House was modeled on the Palais Garnier, the older of Paris’s two opera houses, and is considered to be one of the architectural landmarks of Hanoi. After the departure of the French the opera house became the scene for several political events, Vietnamese plays and musicals.
