Dynamic, fantastic, and opulent, the port city of Shanghai has quickly emerged as a world leader in nearly all of its ventures. Classical music is no exception: Shanghai has a breathtaking array of wondrous, imaginatively constructed concert halls that resonate every night with the captivating sounds of classical music, from the intimacy and transcendence of a string quartet to grand opera on a grand scale. Explore Shanghai’s extravagant theaters and – though you can hear talent from all around the globe on the Chinese concert circuit – take the opportunity to get to know some of China’s most exceptional musicians.
The lively, colorful streets of Beijing fascinate the most traveled of newcomers; the spiritual and artistic life of this great city, filled with joyful surprises and peaceful oases, is just as active and impressive. Beijing’s National Centre for the Performing Arts houses four magnificent halls, each with its own distinctively Chinese decor and all with superior engineering and an exquisite charm. From recitals with the great piano virtuosos of our time to original Chinese operas and rich orchestral programs, Beijing offers a generous selection of bold, unique concert experiences to its people and its visitors alike.
