Designed by French architect Eugene Ferret, Ho Chi Minh City Theatre was built in 1897. It is a typical Gothic architecture for performing arts. It is a typical representative work of French colonial architecture. The exterior walls and windows of the building are covered with exquisite reliefs. Two half-naked goddesses hold the top of the population's door with their hands, while the two angels at the top of the arch hold the harp with beautiful posture. During the Vietnam War, the Grand Theatre was also the parliamentary Hall of the South Vietnamese government; after the reunification of the North and the South, its function as a literary and artistic center was restored. Ho Chi Minh City Theatre has weekly performances in different styles, from Eastern European Style Gymnastics performances to classical music and traditional Vietnamese drama. The performance usually starts after 8 p.m. If you have any questions, you can consult the front desk of the theatre or the hotel staff.
