VALERIE PITTS

The European Baroque architectural style is hailed as the 'Paris Opera House of Shanghai'

The exterior is simple and majestic, while the interior is rich and splendid. The marble gilded carvings, Roman columns, triple-fold hollowed-out staircases, and the second-floor corridor exude extraordinary elegance. The unique 'sea blue' dome paired with golden cloud patterns is classically charming, and every seat in the audience is custom-made in Japan and shipped back to Shanghai. In September 2002, the Shanghai Concert Hall underwent a translational renovation, weighing a hefty 5650 tons. During the move, it was lifted by 3.38 meters and shifted southeast from its original location near the elevated Tibet Road intersection to its current position, traveling a total of 66.46 meters, creating a miracle in the history of architectural relocation in the nation.
