Hainan Free Trade Port Oriental Theater opens
On Dec 21, bidding results for the Oriental Grand Theater project in Dongfang, Hainan province were announced, with the operation and management rights of the Oriental Grand Theater going to the China National Theater.
The theater will be the first theater in the Hainan Free Trade Port on the China National Theater Line. It is scheduled to open at the end of December. At that time, the Central National Orchestra's "Heaven and Earth Eternal Music·Chinese Festival" Oriental New Year Concert will be the opening performance.
The theater has an overall area of about 22,000 square meters with 1,460 seats. It is located in Dongfang City Cultural Square in the center of the city. The total planned area is about 170 acres and the total construction area is about 85,700 square meters.
The completion of the theater will fill a gap in the market for large-scale international theatrical performance venues in southwestern Hainan.
