Xiqu Centre, with a site area of about 13,000 m2, is located at the eastern gate of the West Kowloon Cultural District and is scheduled for completion in 2018. A modern home for Chinese Opera, the Xiqu Centre will be the first venue to open within the West Kowloon Cultural District, Hong Kong’s new cultural precinct. The building is conceived as a cultural sanctuary; a blend of theatre, art, and public space, and a place for contemplation and celebration.
