NCPA Beijing 国家大剧院

National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA) Beijing or National Grand Theater of China. (国家大剧院) A.k.a. as The Giant Egg (巨蛋) We, at Mimi Berlin like to call the experience watching this building at night: Close encounters of the third kind. We haven’t seen the building by daylight, it must be pretty as well, but at night the theater mirrors itself in the surrounding lake and is lit by 3 different colors. The pictures we’ve taken haven’t  been touched by Photoshop, honestly! The kaleidoscopic effect is the real deal!

The NCPA is an opera house in Beijing, People’s Republic of China. It is designed by French architect Paul Andreu in 2001. The Centre, an ellipsoid dome of titanium and glass surrounded by an artificial lake, seats 5,452 people in three halls and is almost 12,000 m² in size. Believe us, that’s huge!
