This is a very different experience than any puppet show we’ve seen. The show was well done and the musicians were very talented. We were near the entrance door and the late comers were very distracting when they entered and several behind us talked loudly...More

I absolutely loved the water puppets! So engaging and so much fun. The dragons breathe fire and spit water we were lucky enough to be in the front row, such a treat. One of my favourite things to do in Hanoi.

The theatre was obviously designed for the local population and not us westerners as the stage is difficult to see fully if sat behind some one of height. That said the show is very clever, and at least you can see the orchestra well. It’s...More

No idea. But you can ask. Tickets were 100, 150 or 200k dong...the closer to the stage the more expensive . 200k is£7 so knock yourself out for the best seats in the house.
