Hong Kong Cultural Center
If you'd like to see and hear world class orchestral and operatic performances during your stay in Hong Kong, then you can book reservations for the performances at the Hong Kong Cultural Center. One of the benefits of a trip to Hong Kong is the performing arts.
If you go to Victoria Harbor, you can see the low Cultural Center building behind the clocktower along the Avenue of Stars pedestrian waterfront walkway. It is a strangely-shaped sprawled building, but inside it is much roomier than it seems from the outside. It is almost cavernous.
The wings contain two big arts performance theaters, and it is kept open during regular hours so if you want you can just walk in and look around, or cut through it to get to the Space Museum or the Golden Mile of Nathan Road.
Together with the Hong Kong Museum of Art, it is part of the Hong Kong for the fine arts.
Hong Kong is matchless in the region for its performing arts. And by visiting their webpage, you can both see their calendar and book tickets. For those who love the performing arts, the Hong Kong Cultural Center is a highlight.
