The new building stands out because of its excellent acoustics, high level of visitor comfort and state-of-the-art stage technology.


Dance theatre by Mei Hong Lin, Music by Alexander Zemlinsky

The King of the Sea’s daughter falls in love with an earthly prince and enters the human world to look for him, although she is in great pain with every step she takes. In 1902 himself in the throes of unrequited unconditional love, Austrian composer Alexander von Zemlinsky found encouragement and inspiration in Hans Christian Andersen’s The little Mermaid for his symphonic poem. He cleverly employed heartrending music to express the psychological process of losing a beloved person, rejection and suffering.
