Shenzhen Poly Theater is an architectural masterpiece and the pride of the city. It can hold all kinds of entertainment including: operas, plays, symphonies, ballets, concerts, lectures and the like.
Inside the Theater, more than 1,500 seats on three terraces and eight balconies overlook the 1,700-square-meter central stage. The acoustic reflector that covers the stage works with the canopy and walls to provide perfect sound effects. “The sound of tearing a piece of paper on the stage can be heard anywhere in the theater” said general manager Zeng Ruoming. In front of the stage is an orchestra pool that can be elevated during the performance of operas and musicals. The huge movable platform and several hundred computer-controlled lamps allow for the most dazzling stage effects.

There are a total of 17 dressing rooms backstage. “This one is nothing shy of splendor compared with the National Grand Theater or the Oriental Art Center in Shanghai,” Zeng said.
The Beijing-based China Poly Group Corporation has invested millions of dollars in the new theater in Shenzhen, which took three years to complete. With the maturing of a well-knit local society and growing demands for entertainment and art, Shenzhen is a highly valued market for the No. 1 live performance supplier in China. “Some have raised the question that Shenzheners are not as keen as those in Shanghai and Beijing on live performances, and the city already has the grand theater, Huaxia Arts Center, and the new concert hall,” said Ren Wei, a senior manager with Beijing Poly. “To me, we’re still short of quality shows here. The industry will not prosper when only one or two theaters have shows to offer. Shenzhen, an economic powerhouse, has great potential in its cultural market. A rich repertoire will gradually draw more people to the theaters and cultivate in them a love and habit of watching galas, musicals, ballets and operas,” he said.
