Singapore has shown a great sense of architectural beauties and brilliance through the ages but this Dorian shaped theater has gone surpass everything. It looks great during the day and even more splendid at night. It is one among five popular Esplanade in the world. Enjoy the view! You are even more lucky if there is a free show running... More

It is a very nice building. Look like a diamond under the blue sky. But we have no chance to go inside this.

Unique design of this building makes us curious what is inside the building. When I came here, there's a theatrical show by some young student, and a music performance. This place is a theater building, and everyday has some show that we can see the list of the show inside the building. This building is really unique.

Best seen from one of the skyscrapers at Marina Bay, but also possible from other vantage points. The interior isn't quite as impressive. And unfortunately the selection of theatre available in Singapore is extremely limited.

The beautiful Durian ( Indonesian fruit ) like building where live shows happens... we have not been inside out outside its very nice especially at night when the lights are on. Its unique in its structure. The reflection of it in the waters of Bay is remarkable....

Nice place to walk by the water and see the sights and enjoy food stalls and occasional performances. Our hotel was in the area so we were lucky to be able to just walk over in the evening. Sometimes there were performances of music and dance. The usual modern Singapore architecture is on display here too. A clean well lighted... More
