Shanghai Grand Theatre
Shanghai Grand Theater is located on the west of the People's Square, the center of Shanghai. Designed by well-known French architect Jean Marie Charpentier, it is in concise and graceful geometrical shape as the crown-like white arc-shaped roof stretching to the blue sky. On the top of the theater are outdoor theaters and a mid-air garden, which are in the shape of a treasure bowl, symbolizing the broad-mindedness of Shanghai in attracting the cultural art of the world. The building, as a magnificent addition to Shanghai's resurging arts and culture scene, facilitates the city's enthusiastic pursuit of the world culture and arts as well as its flexibility ever since ancient times.
