After years of development, the West Kowloon Cultural District project saw the opening of the M+ Pavilion and the Art Park. Next in line is its first dedicated performing arts venue, the Xiqu Centre, which opened on January 20.
As its name suggests, the venue is all about xiqu, or Chinese opera. The 28,164sqm space comprises the Grand Theatre, the Teahouse Theatre, eight professional studios, a seminar hall, and an atrium. The building’s distinctive architecture was inspired by stage curtains and Chinese lanterns.
Tickets for Xiqu Centre’s opening season are now on sale. Expect performances of classics, such as “The Reincarnation of Red Plum” given by award-winning troupes from throughout the region.
