French colonial building
The Hanoi Opera House is an opera house located in central Hanoi, near the Red River. Built by the French in 1911 and renovated in the late 1990s, Hanoi Opera House is an old theater with French architecture and typical Gothic and Mosaic characters reflected on the door domes and the glassed room respectively.
It is a small-scale replica of the Palais Garnier, the older of Paris’s two opera houses.
Some foreign architects said that due to being built nearly 300 years after the Paris Opera House, the Hanoi Opera House avoids superfluous architectural details, which make it more magnificent and attractive.
For a long time, the Hanoi Opera House has been a rendezvous for those who love theatrical performance and traditional songs and music, symphonies, opera and classical opera.
The Hanoi Opera House is a tourist attraction for local and foreign visitors, a worthy artistic center and a cultural and architectural relic of the capital Hanoi.
