Constructed in 1898 by Eugene Ferret – a famous French architect, the grand building was set to be 2 meters higher than the street surface. And 2 door layers play an important role in preventing traffic noise. Thanks to its convenient location that is in the vicinity of Ho Chi Minh Museum, Notre Dame Cathedral and Reunification Palace, the theatre may be combined to a city tour. From a distance, it just looks like a breathtaking colossal city gate.

The architecture leaves a strong impression on viewers by its stone-carved statues and ornaments at the entrance, in addition to clean granite floor and crystal chandeliers at the lobby area. Thus, make sure to bring a high-quality camera to fulfill your photography favorite. Just posting a picture on Facebook, some of your friends can mistakenly think that you are now checking in Paris.
