This is a beautiful theatre that from what I can tell brings in lots of big name touring shows. However I saw a production of Chinese Kun Opera and I thought it was fantastic. Thankfully there were English subtitles. A great experience!

Close to the science and technology subway station this is a new centre which features international and local artists performing in shanghai. The building was ultra modern and the concert hall beautiful. I saw the Russian state ballet perform sleeping beauty.

OAC opened in 2004 - a great venue. Under the same roof, there's the opera house. (Its different from Shanghai Concert Hall.) The decor is warm and simple with great acoustic, it’s a pleasure to enjoy Mutter‘s performance. It's easy to get to and parking is plenty.

This is a great performing arts center, with several different halls. I have seen several performances here of several international artists. The Shanghai Symphony Hall has incredible acoustics and comfortable seating for 1200. All seats have excellent views. Modern design with great public spaces and easy to get her by walking or public transportation.

I have visited this venue on many occasions and have never thought to search it here to leave any feedback. First, It's called the Oriental Art Center but -- i have only seen western performers, performing western things here.. Maybe I should look and see what Oriental performances are offered. I first started buying the highest price seats because I... More

My first visit to this venue I like to visit concert halls around the world on my travels to see a local show and I can highly recommend. We purchased our 80 RMB $16 Australian dollar tickets these were the most expensive but I don't think you would get a bad seat anywhere you selected. We purchased our tickets mid... More

Not much is wrong with Pudong's concert and opera house. Just two trifles come to mind: the name is misleading. I have been there often, to maybe a dozen or more performances, from Anne-Sophie Mutter to more local stars like the Shanghai Symphonic Orchestra. I have never been there for 'oriental art'. Another: the place is too far out. Maybe... More
