Following an international design competition, Snøhetta has been commissioned to design the Shanghai Grand Opera House in Shanghai, China. The project aims to attract a broad audience through offering both traditional and Chinese opera performances, classical concerts and more experimental performances that will attract a younger audience. Snøhetta has developed the architectural, landscape, interior, and graphic design for the Opera, and the project will be undertaken in partnership with Shanghai-based architects ECADI.


Wednesday, April 3, 2019 — The new Opera House is an important part of a new urban master plan for Shanghai that aims to place the city at the forefront of the globe, economically, scientifically, and culturally. The Opera House is expected to become one of the major cultural landmarks of Shanghai – the country’s 13th Five-Year Plan names it as the most important initiative to strengthen Shanghai’s cultural and global influence.

Snøhetta创始人之一KjetilTrædal Thorsen表示,上海大歌剧院是其设计观演文化建筑经验的自然升华。从挪威国家歌剧和芭蕾舞团(奥斯陆歌剧院)、到韩国釜山歌剧院、到加拿大女王大学伊莎贝尔巴德演艺中心,再到法国巴黎的南特阿曼迪尔剧院更新,通过这些全球各地一系列剧院和观演建筑的成功设计,Snøhetta对剧院和观演类文化建筑理解和设计能力已游刃有余。上海大歌剧院项目是Snøhetta因地制宜的实践,同时也是业主和其团队高度重视如何令公共空间用之于民的智慧结晶。通过设计,大歌剧院的公共归属感得以升华。这是为每一位上海市民倾力呈现的歌剧院,同时它也属于全中国和全世界。

“The Shanghai Grand Opera House is a natural progression of our previous work with designing performing artscenters,” says Snøhetta Founder Kjetil Trædal Thorsen. “It is a culmination of the competence and insight gained through projects such as the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet, the Busan Opera House in South Korea, the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts in Canada, and the Théâtre Nanterre-Amandiers renovation in Paris. The Shanghai Grand Opera House is a product of our contextual understanding and values, designed to promote publicownership of the building for the people of Shanghai and beyond”.


The new Opera House will be built in the Expo Houtan neighborhood, located at the convex bank in the riverside area near Huangpu River. The neighborhood, which will have an ecological and low-carbon profile, emphasizes the Opera’s mission of being a public and open venue. The radial layout of the surrounding landscapes harmonizes with the overall geometry of the Opera building, ensuring key view paths from both the Opera to the city, and from the city to the Opera.



Designed to bring artists and the public under a shared roof, the sweeping form of the new Opera House embodies the concept of movement. The helical roof surface evokes an unfolding fan, capturing the dynamism of dance and the human body. Generating both surface andspace, the radial movements of the roof form a spiraling staircase that connects ground and sky and creates views towards the city and the Huangpu river banks. The spiraling, fanning motions extend throughout the project, into the lobby, the halls, and the three auditoriums. The Opera House’s visual identity also references the same movements, with the new, clean logo characterized by a highly recognizable open fan pattern.





Public Space and a Generous Design

The Opera roof will become an accessible stage and meeting place, suitable to both large-scale events and everyday visitors. In celebrating both the collective and the individual, the plaza will allow visitor access 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, engendering a sense of public ownership. A series of restaurants, galleries, exhibitions, museums, education centers, libraries and small cinemas will all contribute to the Opera becoming a popular destination.


大歌剧院的核心是 2000 座的主礼堂:精密的舞台设备提供了最先进的技术解决方案和卓越的声学效果。1200 座的第二演出厅将提供更为亲和的配置,适用于较小规模的剧目创作和排演。1000 座的情景剧场提供了灵活的舞台机械和座椅配置,为上海大歌剧院的特色情景或实验性演出需求量身定做。

At the heart of the Opera is the 2,000-seatmain auditorium: a finely tuned instrument that offers state-of-the-arttechnical solutions and superior acoustics. The 1,200-seat second stage will offer a more intimate setting for smaller productions. The 1,000-seat third stage offers a flexible stage and seating arrangement, providing space for more experimental and unique performances, aiming to attract a new generation of opera goers.



The white Opera exterior stands in contrast to the soft silk used for the interior lining. Oak wood forms the main floors of the galleries and the interior of the hall, ensuring good acoustic properties. In the hall itself, the wood is stained in hues of dark red. Expansive glass panes open up the main hall to natural light, which transforms the experience of the building throughout the day and from season to season. At night, exterior lights change the appearance of the stage towers, transforming them into glowing lanterns, illuminating the roof and skyline.






The Shanghai Grand Opera House will be a world-class venue, placing the visitor at the center of the stage. Through its aesthetics, functionality, as well as its cultural and ecological ambition, the Opera House will be an accessible canvas for global visitors, local citizens, and artists to fill with life and culture.
