Channeling the architecture of Beijing's Forbidden City (it's a grand space) and attracting some of the best Chinese and international acts of all types, this is Taiwan's premier performing arts venue. You might find yourself at a concert by Yo-Yo Ma or watching the Kirov Ballet perform Swan Lake. Across the way is the National Concert Hall, another impressive venue. Both halls can host two events at one time, and both often sell out, so get tickets in advance.
