Esplanade Theaters by the Bay

1 Esplanade Drive
Marina Bay
Tel: 65 6828 8222's insider take:

Set right on the Marina Bay waterfront, this magnificent performing-arts center comprises a 1,600-seat concert hall (home to the Singapore Symphony Orchestra), a 2,000-seat theater, and several smaller venues. The program of events includes everything from Chinese opera to jazz festivals, classical Indian dance to Russian ballet; big-name performers like Yo-Yo Ma and Rickie Lee Jones make frequent appearances. This being Singapore, the theaters are attached to a shopping mall, with a wide array of quick-bite joints; for a multi-course pre-theater dinner, try the elegant (and inaccurately named) Chinese restaurant My Humble House (65-6423-1881).
