Excellent and impressive performance from tribal people with Gongs and huge bamboos. We had the opportunity to come early and visit the opera house built in the 19th century by French architecture

May not be in the same category as some others, but the Opera House has beautiful architecture both outside and in. The upgraded interior has enhanced the acoustics to that of any other opera house. Great job!

Sort of an Asian Cirque du Solieu. Quite acrobatic and athletic. The building is in the flamboyant French 3rd REPUBLIC STYLE, ornate and beautiful. $70 seats for the balcony were worth it for the view, but the included glass of wine, not so much.
