    “Cavalleria Rusticana” and “Pagliacci” Opera Performance - @ Cinematheque In the second half of the 19th century, more operas were composed based on the principle of natural school of France, also known as verismo in Italy. The story of the opera refers to the issue of civilian world, not fairies, kings, nobility, or as in the opera in the last century. Cavalleria Rusticana by Pietro Mascagni and Ruggero Leoncavallo's Pagliacci are short operas, often shown together as CAV / PAG. Both of these books were composed in the 1890s, tell stories of the lovelorn who seek vengeance from their unfaithful lovers. Vào nửa sau thế kỷ 19, có thêm nhiều vở opera được sáng tác dựa trên nguyên tắc của trường phái tự nhiên Pháp, được gọi là verismo theo truyền thống Italy. Câu chuyện trong các vở opera này đề cập đến những vấn đề của giới thường dân, chứ không phải thần tiên, vua chúa, hay giới quý tộc như trong các vở opera ở những thế kỷ trước. Cavalleria Rusticana của Pietro Mascagni, và Pagliacci của Ruggero Leoncavallo là những vở opera ngắn, gồm một màn, và thường được diễn cùng nhau như CAV/PAG. Cả hai vở này đều được sáng tác vào những năm 1890, và đều kể về những kẻ bị phụ tình tìm cách trả đũa lại người yêu không chung thuỷ của họ, và thực hiện được điều đó trước khi vở diễn kết thúc. Tickets: 60.000 VND can be purchased through info@hanoioperaguild.com Quantity is limited so get booking!

Perhaps one of the very nicest spots to enjoy a drink in the evening, even if you don't fancy the movie. The bar is in a shady courtyard and serves a variety of cocktails, beers and wines - the Lemongrass Martini is especially good.
The movie programme is varied and management presents a range of esoteric films which are sometimes hit-or-miss in their effect on the audience; a recent fictional movie filmed in Bali in the 1930s, for example, was a narrative disaster but was quite fascinating when viewed as a documentary piece.
Interesting guest speakers and presenters frequently make an appearance.
The box office staff are absolutely delightful, too.
Membership is required for movie-going but after that you can go and see a double bill at the modest price of 50,000VND. One of the best treats in town.

The Cinematheque is a wonderful, wonderful place. Hanoi is so lucky to have such an excellent independent cinema. It shows an extremely diverse range of films and is staffed by people who truly love film and cinema. The courtyard cafe is a beautiful and calm oasis, reasonably priced and does the best steak and chips I have ever eaten. My husband and I often go there just for the food. My only regret is that we can't go often enough.

This is one of the great places in Hanoi ensuring that you get to see films that would normally not be shown in this city.
It is run by dedicated volunteers that should be treated with respect and not humiliated by stingy guests.
Yes it says "donation" on the box - but come on, get the point and pay.

I really like this small art house cinema for the themed programs they offer and the special guests who often come to speak about their work. The owner and the staff put a great deal of effort into this venture and their passion shows. My understanding of their nonprofit status and their "suggested donation" is that it's the only arrangement they can have to operate with the necessary government approval. It is understandable that patrons might be upset that their "donations" seem less than voluntary, but I think it is due not to a duplicitous management but rather it is a work around of business-government regulation. And that "suggested donation" is about the only thing that keeps this valuable and relevant non profit running.
