What year was Hanoi Opera House built?
Ever since arriving in Hanoi in 1883, the French colonial government intended to build a cultural and artistic center. In 1901, Hanoi Opera House was started construction and inaugurated in 1911.

This artistic masterpiece is designed after the model of the Opéra Garnier theater in Paris. Therefore, the Hanoi Opera House bears the mark of classical European architecture with perfection in every detail, providing the most luxurious, academic art space in Indochina of its time.

After 1945, the Hanoi Opera House became a conference venue for the National Assembly and the Government, where military parades took place... Many Vietnamese drama troupes can also rent the theater to Forum. With the formation of Hanoi's urban population and new intellectuals, the theater has become a vibrant artistic place for Vietnamese writers and artists today.

By the end of the 20th century, Hanoi Opera House fell into serious disrepair. At that time, the Government of Vietnam decided to choose a duplicate program. The project began in 1995, completed in 1997. This is the first and only restoration of the theater ever.

Today, Hanoi Opera House is one of the largest theaters in Vietnam. Academic art performances often take place here and are also a tourist attraction when arriving in Hanoi.

We were not able to go inside but the facade of the building was so pretty. There were also pink trees in front when we went there. The architecture was great. This was the place where the Hanoi City Bus started so we got the chance to see it.

Though didn't have the chance to attend a show due to time constraints, we were delighted to see the beautiful structure lit up in the night. With a yellowish tinge, it’s worth the view.

An immersive experience in a small yet romantic opera house centre, it's not the Sydney Opera house but it is a beautiful space full of rich culture and beauty. I highly recommend giving it a shot!

Hanoi Opera House was built by French government during their colonialization time in Vietnam. It is located at the central area of Hanoi city, within walking distance from Hoan Kiem Lake. It is one of Hanoi landmark and the tourist destination in the city. I didn't manage to catch up a show here, just enjoying the view of the French architectural products from outside. Within the vicinity, there are hotels, restaurants, local street food outlets, government office and other landmarks. To reach here, you may take the public transportation and e-hailing Grab service.

The Grand Opera House was erected by the French colonial administration between 1901 and 1911. Iconic building with French architecture and typical Gothic and Mosaic characters. It's worth a look if you visit Hanoi.

Beautiful colonial opera house. The façade is inspired by the Opéra Garnier in Paris and has a Belle Époque fashion. It’s worth a visit. Visitors can enter only when they’re audience of a concert, otherwise, the building isn’t opened to the public. However, you can access the garden and the right wing from the back via Highlands Coffee entrance.

If you are in the city, plan to attend a show so you can also enjoy the inside of the opera house that was well preservated.

An ideal spot to stand and witness the hustle and bustle of Hanoi city. It's an iconic building and mostly used as a pick up spot for tourists for various day trips.

The building reminds of the French architecture and well maintained till now. Also ideal as a good background for pictures.

You can find many people sitting here or taking pictures. The place in front of the opera is free and no vehicles are allowed to park.

Very near from Hanoi's city center and other tourist spots.

Since opera houses are intended for opera, theatre and concerts, the best way to evaluate is by attending such an event. I went to hear a classical concert featuring a stunning flautist. The acoustics and visibility were terrific, as was my physical comfort. The building was stunning, viewed from the outside, at night, and equally so from the inside. Highly recommended!
