Shanghai Grand Theater
Opened in 1998, the Grand Theater has one of the largest and best equipped automatic stages in the world. It was designed by ARTE Charpentier, a famous architecture design company established by Jean-Marie Charpentier, a brilliant French architect and urban planner. When night falls, the whole construction resembles a crystal palace.
Having three theaters of different sizes and being equipped with advanced lighting and stereo facilities, the Grand Theater is now the stage for world-class works of art, international art activities and education.
Concerts performed at the Grand Theater include The Three Tenors, plus many European operas, classical music dramas and musical concerts by the top symphony orchestras. Performances by some of the world's most-famous ballet companies are often given in the large theater. Also, a number of original Chinese operas, dramas, pantomimes and traditional musical concerts can frequently be seen. Quite a few international art activities are held here, including the China Shanghai International Art Festival, the SCO Members Art Festival, the Shanghai International Film Festival, the French Culture Year, the Italian Culture Year and the German Culture Week.
