Interesting show, I can imagine how children would find this fun in the olden days. The traditional music was the best part. The theater is very old and falling apart, our sets were like sitting on wood benches.

We had a great time. The music was relatively subdued. The theater lovely. The drama of the ducks and fox, and the animal ballets were wonderful. Traditional instruments used. Live singing. So much better than we expected.

We were fortunate to get second row seats to this very lovely water puppet show. Sponsored by the Ministery of Culture. The acts are accompanied with North Vietnamese folk music and singing. There are 12 acts in total and is incredible how the puppeteers work...More
I enjoyed this, but it lacked something. I saw it as a traditional show, that had to be seen. The puppeteers are very skilful at what they do, as are the musicians.
Must admit I slept through part of it.
