The Saigon Opera House is one of the two top venues in Vietnam to listen to opera and classical music. The other one is the Hanoi Opera House.
One of Ho Chi Minh City’s most prominent landmarks, the Saigon Opera House was custom built in 1897 by the French architect Eugene Ferret. In 1955 it was transformed into South Vietnam’s Assembly House and has undergone several refurbishments since. It is only open to the public during events.
