Most of the shows (stage and musical plays and likes) are staged here. If you are interested on these, come and visit this place. You can also visit this place if you're an architecture fanatic.

The entrance lobby of CCP at night is elegant. Although it may seem that the place is already old, it is still one of the best venues for performing art shows within Manila.

It's definitely a great place to visit. Especially if they have events being held there. CCP is indeed a masterpiece in itself as the architectural design really is amazing and the interior of the building really speaks elegance, art and beauty.

I attended the CCP twice this year, once as a tourist, the second time as a guest for a specific art event featuring Philippine National and International Artists. The CCP typically has ongoing theater, dance and live performances and rotating visual art shows. Be sure to check out their calendar of events and plan for an afternoon or evening out... More

Being among the oldest theater facilities in Manila, the CCP is still the premier venue to catch orchestras, ballets, and traveling theater productions. Seating varies from theater to theater, their main theater has side balcony seats which aren't ideal if you're with kids. They'll have difficulty watching because the seats are a bit far and balcony ledge are tall (once... More

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
