The Esplanade Theatres on the Bay

2009-12-19 2

The Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, also affectionally known to the locals as “the durian”, due to its close resemblance of the strong smelling fruit, is a waterside building located on six hectares of waterfront land alongside Marina Bay near the mouth of the Singapore River, purpose-built to be the centre for performing arts for the island nation of Singapore.

The Esplanade occupies the site of the former “Satay Club”, a popular food haunt for Singaporeans which had been discontinued prior to the Esplanade’s construction.

The Esplanade contains world-class performing spaces, coupled with a wide range of professional support services and facilities. Other than performing venues, the Esplanade also contains meeting venues, as well as other lifestyle and arts related services. The main highlights of the Esplanade – the concert hall and Theatre, are connected to the main concourse via a foyer, while the Esplanade Mall is accessible through an entry point located between these 2 halls.

If anyone of you ever visit Singapore, you must definitely drop by the Esplanade for a musical experience!
