Exactly a year ago, on 10 October 2018, we were at Fuzhou celebrating the opening of the Strait Culture and Art Centre!
The opening concert featured the China Philharmonic Orchestra with a programme of Chinese and Western music. Since then, the SCAC has hosted 178 performances and 42 other public events to 150,000 viewers. Visiting performers have included music, dance and theatre groups and soloists from 21 countries.
The SCAC also arranges a monthly "People's Stage – People's Home" event, where citizens can take the stage, making full use of the centre's facilities and services.
The 153,000 m2 hybrid cultural complex is our seventh project completed in China. Its five buildings and connecting terraces and underground levels contain an opera house, concert hall, multifunctional theatre, art exhibition hall and cinema centre alongside various commercial and leisure services. The design of the white, ceramic-clad buildings evokes sails as well as the petals of a jasmine blossom, the city flower of Fuzhou.
