'My Village' at the Hanoi Opera House

The Hanoi Opera House

The Hanoi Opera House was built over a hundred years ago during the Vietnam’s French Colonial period.

French Architecture
It is on the east side of the giant “Square of August Revolution” six road roundabout.  (August, 14 1945 was when the revolution against the French was launched by Ho Chi Minh)

We went to see the show “My Village” sometimes referred to as the Bamboo Cirque de Soleil.

The play was a story about ancient Vietnamese Village Life.  The entire set was constructed from bamboo poles that were remade multiple times into different structures that the actors/dancers/acrobats would use.

It was a fun and interesting night into the culture of Vietnam.
