The popular Ionah Show is Hanoi’s answer to Cirque du Soleil. This one-of-a-kind stage performance uses modern dance, music, lighting effects and circus spectaculars to tell the memorable story of a young girl and her star-crossed lover.
Travelers are greeted by live entertainment as soon as they enter the theater lobby, where a pianist offers up live music as visitors file into their seats. The excitement doesn’t stop until the final curtain drops. Travelers say Ionah Show exceeds expectations, thanks to well-designed stage settings, colorful traditional costumes and a memorable storyline that says as much about Hanoi as it does about young love.
The 90-minute show takes place Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. Tickets cost US$36 for first class seats and US$27 for second class seats. The theater is located at 87 Lang Ha Street in Ba Dinh, Hanoi.
