You can't miss the building. It is huge and imposing. It houses performances, theatre, concerts, exhibitions and a musical instrument museum. We visited during the day and the first somewhat scruffy look with faded carpets was balanced by the exquisite slim architecture in concrete with sweeping stairs and benches rising up from the floor. The musical instrument exhibition is worth... More

It's a beautiful place--while it may seem old fashioned, its classic beauty is really timeless. Watched Wicked here and the Swan Lake (before) and it's great. Seats are comfortable enough, though the farther seats are kind of far.

My last visit was when I watched Beauty and the Beast broadway. Nothing much has changed inside. It still has a bit of that elegant feel to it, and has museums upstairs that you can pay for.

CCP still looks majestic even if some say it's "brutalist". The interiors though need a facelift; the carpet leading to the Main Theater is really showing its age. Not too long ago, this wasn' too noticeable during the Phantom run. Still a great place to watch a musical or a play but if it wants to compete with newer theaters,... More

This is our cultural events place. Countless of local and international shows have been presented in this theatre, and it has served it's purpose well. But, it will fail in comparison to the latest and modern theaters of other countries. Although kept clean and maintained properly, it has lag far, in terms of technology. Time to upgrade please.

I love this place! You can still feel how exciting it is to step in to this grand theater. Most international musical productions are staged here which makes it a hotspot for theater fans, local shows are also staged at the main theater and the little theaters within the building. Unfortunately, due to its age, it's already showing some wear... More

The place where thousands of Ballet shows has been shown. Home of the Artists both local and foreign. This place was memorable for me as this is where most of my childhood was spent for my ballet classes, rehearsals, recitals etc. Leely it has been home to many broadway shows like miss saigon, phantom of the opera, stomp, and recently...
