Cirque Nouveau, or ‘New Circus’, will be the most unique feature of the Opera. The term Cirque Nouveau was made famous and became widely used since Cirque du Soleil became a household name by combining music, circus-style acts and elaborate costumes. There are no animals used in this type of circus and influences are drawn as much from contemporary culture as from circus history.
At the Opera, you will experience daily performances by acrobats, contortionist, trapeze acts, gymnast and martial artists; all blending in their acts with modern club tracks by regional and international DJs as well as video dj-eing where music videos are mixed and played on giant LED screens. Live bands, concerts will also take stage and there will be both Italian and Chinese opera performers and singers to add novelty to this grand theatre.
Located on the rooftop of the Opera with a space of 4000 sq feet, this area holds several functional bars, which makes it an ideal place for functions, private parties and events. Here the party is set where the atmosphere is al fresco with the music filling the night air and stars replacing club lights against the sky as the backdrop. With big projector screens and several seating choices, ‘the Observatory’ just like ‘the Long Lounge’, provides a more relaxed and chilled-out ambience for patrons - a perfect antithesis to the certain to be wild Opera’s main room.
