One of the three opera houses constructed in Indochina during French colonial control is the Hanoi Opera House. It first opened its doors at the start of the 20th century, and it continues to be well-known today, holding opera, dance, and classical music events. Notable performances include La Traviata by Giuseppe Verdi and The Marriage of Figaro by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. In contrast to other more traditional Western venues, seating is assigned upon arrival as opposed to standing in an assigned place. There are a variety of ticket prices available depending on when you purchase them and which performance you attend.
