This is one of few very impressive buildings that have been kept intact in downtown HCMC. We were unable to take in an opera, but were impressed by the building itself.

The building is full of history and beautiful that you can not miss. I personally feel the building is too new after several renovation. But the performance is just ok.

We wore what we would go out to dinner in ,not dressed up as such, but not too casual.
Can you book tickets online? The ticket office portion of the web page seems not to do anything if I click on a date. I'm using a mobile so not sure if this is the problem or if you just have to call.
