The National Centre for the Performing Arts, also known as The Giant Egg, is an arts centre containing an opera house in Beijing.

The exterior of the theatre is a glass dome surrounded by a man-made lake, making it look like an egg floating on water.

Inside, there are three performance halls: the Opera Hall, the Music Hall and the Theatre Hall

The opera we watched was an Chinese interpretation of Romeo and Juliet, two lovers being torn apart by their respective parents.
