The theatre, located on 2,080sq.m, has three storeys with a concert hall. A modern outdoor auditorium with 850 seats is also included. 

Đổi trò chơiThe concert hall is designed for live music events, including classical and acoustic music performances.

The building, worth more than VND70 billion (US$3 million), has display areas for cultural and arts activities and exhibitions.

“We’re working to create Da Lat as one of the country’s most attractive tourist cities. We hope the Da Lat Opera House will be the place to organise quality cultural programmes targeting music and theatre that meets the taste of residents, and domestic and foreign tourists,” said Nguyen Viet Van, director of the city’s Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

Da Lat, the provincial capital of Lam Dong, is located 1,500m above sea level on the Langbian Plateau in the southern part of Central Highlands region. First discovered by the French in the 19th century, the area has since been among the country’s most popular tourist destinations.

Đổi trò chơiAs a locality where the economy depends heavily on tourism, the damage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has greatly affected the socio-economic development of Da Lat.

 

Đổi trò chơiIn the first eight months of the year, the total number of tourists to Da Lat was slightly more than 2 million, down by half compared to the figure in the same period last year.

Local authorities have implemented many activities to stimulate tourism demand such as tourism promotions and discounts. Many agencies providing tourism services such as dining, accommodation, and sightseeing have offered discounts of 30 to 50 per cent compared to normal days, while many flights to Da Lat have also offered similar discounts. 

Lam Dong now is considered a safe destination as there have been no cases of COVID-19 infection in recent months.

Dozens of famous singers, such as pop stars Dam Vinh Hung and Ha Anh Tuan, have organised concerts in Da Lat this year. 

The Da Lat Opera House is located at Lam Vien Square near Xuan Huong Lake. 

The theatre’s opening ceremony, starring pop idol Uyen Linh, and pianists Phi Phi and Tuan Manh, is expected to begin at 8pm on December 12.  VNS
