The Hanoi Opera house was constructed between 1901 and 1911 by the french colonial administration. The Opéra Garnier in Paris was used as example for the building.

The first picture shows guerilla troups gathering in front of the opera during the August Revolution which lead to Vietnam's independence.
The second picture shows the renovated opera today.
