Affectionately known among locals as the "durian", Esplanade is one of the busiest arts centres in the world with about 3,000 performances presented yearly. Spot our prickly cladding in the middle of the central arts and cultural district, and take in the view from the Marina bay waterfront where our Outdoor Theatre is situated. Coming to Esplanade means that you're in for a complete lifestyle experience, from enjoying a night out at a show, to shopping and dining. And whether you're a first-timer, an ardent patron or fellow arts lover, you're most welcome here and we'll do our best to give you a great experience with the arts.

An inside look: lobby and concert hall - April 2018. These views can be seen if you have tickets for the concert hall or if you take a paid guided tour of the Esplande concert hall.

This is a wonderful place with a great architecture and free concerts almost daily in the outdoor theatre or in the entrance hall. Combine it with a walk at night along the river and marina bay and enjoy the amazingly illuminated buildings around the bay

Hi there! Yes, if the seats are not labelled (restricted view), you should have a clear view of the stage from Circle 1 all the way up to Circle 3. Hope this helps, thanks!
