The National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA) is the top performing arts centre in China with its fabulous and international performances and stunning building. It has become a new landmark building of Beijing since it was built.

The unique building designed by French architect Paul Andrew resembles a shell lying on a lake. In addition, the center has underwater corridors, an underground garage, an artificial lake and the green space. It covers an area of about 29 acres (about 12 hectares). The whole project started from December 2001. After more than 5 years' construction, it was finally completed in September, 2007. Now it is believed to be the deepest architecture in Beijing with the deepest point being -106.6 feet (-32.5 meters), equivalent to the height of a 10-floor building.

The theatre contains three auditoriums including the Opera House, the Concert Hall and the Theater where all kinds of performances like dramas, operas, dance shows and symphonies are staged frequently. Besides, various exhibitions and activities usually can be found here as well.
