There will be three different music shows to be held in October, most notably is Operetta Die Fledermaus by Johann Strauss II, who is dubbed "The Waltz King". The play is humorous, fun, exposing hilarious, cliché in the life of the aristocracy, the ancient European city. Fraud in family, friends and society has created a surprisingly exciting drama.

With great music, the operetta is much more entertaining than the historical musical or philosophical, deep religious. At the hands of director David Hermann, the Die Fledermaus has a lively Vietnamese version with HBSO, the dance and the special performance that resonates instantly after the first performance in 2017. The program's conductor is talented conductor Tran Nhat Minh. The opera will be re-opened at 8 pm on October 28, 2018 at the Opera House.
