  Opera House
by Blatherwick

The Ha Noi Opera House was completed in 1911 in the same architectural style as the Opera House in Paris. This is the most striking building in Hanoi with its neo-Baroque architecture that feature pillars and balconies overlooking the city center. The 900-seat opera house plays host to visiting foreign performances as well as Vietnamese symphonies. If you enjoy this type of entertainment, the best seats usually sell for less than $10 USD10. It was from a balcony of this building on 16th august 1945 that the Viet Minh announced from the main balcony that they had taken over the city.
