What a great place to visit

I booked a ticket to watch Chinese opera and I was really surprised by the size of thos venue. It's huge, modern, very well organized with some great staff working around. Also the security guards inside the venue looked so amazingly weird 😁

Went to a show at the National Center for the Performing Arts. So colourful, loud and exciting. Stage became a waterfall. Fantastic to watch. Enjoyed it so much well worth the visit

Excellent Venue for classical concerts, ballet, and opera. Easily accessible from the subway. Don't expect to get food once you enter the building.

Highly recommended for art/music performance lover, both theatre and music hall were fantastic, and the exterior look is great for photo too. Also, recommend to leave some time in the theatre shop as they have some fine souvenirs to take home.

A lovely place to visit but local people are very noisy and undisciplined.. What is a pity. Go there early in morning to avoid that

Known as the egg for its design, the center’s interior and exterior are both beautiful. Spent some time indoors for the exhibitions on the performances that have been held and it was informative. It is also a nice place to stay warm during winter.

This building made a real impression on me and you have to go and see it at night when it is lit up in fifer the colours. It really does look like an egg when you see the reflection in the water. Would love to come back to Beijing and see a concert here
