We had been planning to visit the Municipal Theatre Ho Chi Minh City while we are here in Vietnam, either to have a look through or to see the A O Show by Lune Productions.
So it was great timing when family visited from Thailand and we had the opportunity to see both the theatre and the show in the one visit.
I’ll write about the details of the shows at the Opera House below as the building is shared by Lune Production and also the Ho Chi Minh City Ballet Symphony Orchestra and Opera.
It’s better to write about the shows and the theatre on the same page as most people would be going to see the building and a show at the same time.
As we were with family we had the pleasure of a taxi ride into the city for tonight’s performance rather than catching the bus like we normally do.
So that was a bonus as well!
The Municipal Theatre Ho Chi Minh City is in the heart of city and is a short walk from Walking Street if you are in that area.
When you first see the building at night it certainly is impressive.
I think it has something to do with the space around the building and of course the great lighting.
This space around the building gives the flamboyant French architecture breathing space and is quite refreshing amongst the squash of the big city.
It certainly is a great looking building.
