Went to watch A Space Odyssey with a good friend of mine. We got the cheapest tickets which means that our seats were very close to the musicians. It didn't matter though, a good performance is a good performance. The service was also friendly and they greeted us with warm smiles. The interior of the auditorium was really a great... More

Went here for a "Jazz" performance which was a little on the Broadway Musical side of the spectrum given the core jazz players were backed by the full orchestra. That said, the space itself is excellent and the sound was fantastic. If you're into the music that's on, then its definitely worth a visit. Be warned though, they have a... More

Was here for an orchestra and was trully amused by the good acoustics & sound proofing. Everything just sounded better in this hall and our seats had a good view of the stage. Brilliant orchestra and definitely worth every buck we paid.

The place is very well built. Vision is good from everywhere and acustic is very good too. It s also quite small compared to Eu grand theatres hence you enjoy the vosy athmosphere. Very luxurious hall, cheap drinks overall and locker service. I also like the fact that there is a dress code, i hate to see people in shorts... More

I was there for Carmen In Dance, and I was shocked with the stage, I kept complaining and then my friend remind me that we were in MPO, so I will just keep in mind that I dont need to go there anymore for ballet/dance event, but I will for an orchestra.

I visited the mpo and was quite dissapointed from the hall. I was expecting a fabulous hall, in the twin towers, but it was a really small hall, and at the ground floor the seats are not at the correct angle. It worths to go, only if you have a seat at the balconies. The sound quality was really good,... More

Had a really enjoyable visit to see the New Year Dances. The concert hall was lovely, but quite modest in comparison to some in Europe. The acoustics were up to par though. The resident orchestra were splendid. Concert master was brilliant and so was the cello soloist. The conductor was really warm and welcoming toward the audience. Overall really enjoyable.... More

The MPO was founded towards the end of the last millennium and is one of the most recent philharmonic orchestras to have been formed. 107 musicians came together under the sponsorship of PETRONAS, mainly westerners but with a significant number of Asians including a smattering of Malaysians. Over the following 16 years more Malaysians have joined the orchestra which continues... More

Have been there for concerts on numerous occasions throughout the years. For a concert hall, it is relatively small and cosy but I think that the venue, acoustics and facilities cannot be faulted and the staff are quite professional. The resident orchestra / the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra is of world class too, with mostly foreign musicians. Very convenient as it... More
