Zhuhai Opera House, Guangdong province, China
The Zhuhai Grand Theatre with its splendid, scallop-shaped twin structure was solemnly opened in October 2016 after six years of construction. The two scallops symbolise the sun and the moon. The larger and the smaller scallop offer space for 1550, respectively 550 concert visitors. The entire grounds of the project cover 50,000 square metres and are provided with ultra-modern technology for sound and lighting design.
Erected on an island that can be conveniently reached by car, bicycle or on foot, the opera house has become the new cultural centre and landmark of the Kong, Zhuhai and Macao region.
