While I never had a chance to visit inside I found the architecture of the Shanghai Grand Theater grand and interesting.

Performed in this venue and the facilities are stunning. The building itself is lovely and we had a wonderful time. Had a brief look at the calendar of events are it seems to have a very diverse and busy programme. Definitely worth having a look at if in Shanghai.

I've visited the Shanghai Grand Theatre a few times over the past year for awards shows and other international events. It's a lovely space, quite imposing, well located, with a nice space downstairs for refreshments/cocktail events, just wish they were able to allow nicer catering inside.

While it was closed on Monday, I still had a chance to walk by and take some pictures of the building. It is one of the popular and most photographed building in Shanghai. Very near to Shanghai museum, so probably can visit both.

I have been to a few shows at this location. I have always had a great seat at a very reasonable price. The sound is great and the types of performances varied. I would reccomend checking out the schedule regularly and seeing some great shows!

We attended a concert of Western music in this spectacular new concert hall building (across the street from the Shanghai Museum in People's Square). The acoustics were quite good, and the architecture is spectacular. There was no taxi line after the concert; almost everyone seemed to walk down the street to the People's Square subway station (where taxis also cruise).

A half moon designed architecture that provided excellent shows of the world at the central location in Shanghai. Shanghai Grand Theater is a perfect place for the performance of concert, opera and shows. The famous shows such as: Lion King, Mama Mia…etc. You must enjoy it!

Staying in People’s Square

Neighborhood Profile
People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.
