"Hanoi Opera House" It is one of the important architectural features of the French colonial period of Vietnam. The Ionian-style cylindrical and grey stone brick building materials were shipped from France to Vietnam. It can be seen that France wanted to rebuild Vietnam. After ten years of construction, it finally opened in 1911. It was not until 1945 that Viet Minh launched the August Revolution on the balcony of the Opera House, which was considered to be the pride of France's cultural and architectural art in the colonies.
After independence, the Hanoi Opera House became a civil theatre that promoted socialism. In recent years, the Vietnamese government has refurbished the opera house and wants to restore the past French style. The large crystal chandeliers, Parisian mirrors and bright marble steps left over from the past are a gorgeous part of the French style. It is a pity that the Hanoi Opera House is not open to the public.
The Hanoi Opera House was left behind by French colonial rule, a French-style building with yellow and white as its main body. Some major events and cultural performances will be held here. It is not open to the public free of charge. If you want to go in, you can only buy tickets when you have a show.
As with most of the other reviews of the Opera House, I found the building impressive and enjoyed my visit. It is worth highlighting here that there is a free and reasonably clean public toilet in the small park adjacent to the Opera House.
A notorious piece of focal Hanoi, this musical show house was initially worked by the French frontier organization.
