Municipal Theatre of Ho Chi Minh City, also known as Saigon Opera House is a superb example of French-Colonial architecture in Vietnam. The opera house was built in 1897 by French architect Eugene Ferret and was called Opera de Saigon. Its architectural style was influenced by the flamboyant style of the French Third Republic, with the facade shaped like the Petit Palais in Paris which was built in the same year in France.
