Nelum Pokuna Mahinda Rajapaksa Theatre - Review

Though the surrounding area is full of imposing and grand buildings, none are more eyecatching than the Lotus Pond Theatre. Built in 2011, inspired by the 12th-century Nelum Pokuna in Polonnaruwa, this state of the art venue with seating for 2576 is the city's favourite performance arts destination. Concerts, theatre, dance and even international conferences are hosted here. The curving, reflective facade is even more striking at night, when the venue is entirely lit up with multi-colored LED lights.

  • The Nelum Pokuna (Lotus Pond) – Mahinda Rajapaksa Theatre is a fully equipped sate of the art performance centre, meant for large scale theatrical productions. The theatre consists of two venues for performances, which includes the main auditorium and an Open Air Amphitheater. Situated in the heart of Colombo city, this modern architectural masterpiece facilitates easy access for both local and foreign producers. The Theatre is also surrounded by several five Star Hotels and other commercial establishments

  • Seating capacity over 1000+ with plenty of parking space for everyone. Seats were very comfortable. It's has an interesting modern structure which resembles a lotus flower. You can't have normal visits, it's for events only. Basically, it's a drive by. A fine place for entertainment enthusiasts. It's a great place to launch a corporate or an art event. It can be used as a outdoor musical events too.

  • It's a lovely place but certain seatings in the balcony do not have a good view of the whole stage. Even seating numbers are placed at the wrong end so may need some help to locate it. Happy theatrering!

  • Perfect auditorium.. beautiful architecture.. comfortable seats & great Maintainance. I found only one issue in 3rd floor balcony front row seats cannot see the stage so beware of selecting first 2 rows from the front.

  • Very very nice place. Ample parking, excellent space management, unbelievable quality theatre, clean washrooms, crystal clear audio system, kind staff always very helpful, what else...simply an amazing place
