National Taichung Theater - Review

What makes this place extra amazing is the person it was designed by. Well thought and assembled by architect Toyo Ito, it was a result of a successful collaboration between Ito and Cecil Balmond. Today, the place owns the prestige to be one of the Taiwan’s top tourist destinations. Entering the theatre, you will find it to be divided into three sections, all decked with seats of various capacities. The space, interiors and over all architecture of the theatre gives it a unique feel for visitors who are often awed but its technical complexity yet visual magnificence. Its aesthetic and acoustic effect is a something sure not to be missed. Come with your family and friends and spend some great time watching a movie and simply moving around.

National Taichung Theater, Taichung Reviews

  • If you're visiting National Taichung Opera via THSR (Taiwan High Speed Rail), you could take bus 161 @ platform 11 at the THSR Taichung Station. One stop.

  • 如果將整個世界比喻為一條河流,我想做的建築,是像漩渦般的場所。 建築師伊東豊雄 伊東豊雄認為,自然界不斷地變化,每件活著的事物都不斷在改變,但是為什麼建築卻被期待始終不變? 「我一直在尋求創造有如河流上漣漪一般的建築,一個既能與流動的河流維持關係,又同時保有自我的空間。」 因此他打破傳統音樂廳穩定、封閉的結構,歌劇院建築幾乎全由曲牆構成,牆與天花板所定義的空間都是流動且沒有邊界,人們能自由地舉辦各種活動。 歌劇院猶如中臺灣的漩渦,嚮往都市生活的群眾,自由地被吸引流入;藝術也能蔓延至城市各角落。 從外觀來看,混凝土曲牆與玻璃帷幕優雅的相互嵌合,則猶似「壺中居」形象,隱喻每一位進來的民眾,都將要為藝術酩酊,因藝術而醉心。

  • 台中終於有像樣的表演藝術場所可以有展出。 之前曾在兩廳院|國家音樂廳內, 看過雲門2的「十三聲」, 而後巡演到台中,又前往台中|中山堂看, 比較下來真的差距甚大。 設備上的差異不在話下, 畢竟兩廳院是國家等級, 經費、人力等等資源一定會有落差。 但,欣賞表演的素質十分低落。 在台北是一群「觀眾」觀賞, 在台中僅剩下「民眾」等級, 響鈴聲、交談、繳電話真的都有出現。 所以得知歌劇院建立時,很興奮, 表演廳裡該有的音響、投影設備等一定皆會有水準之上, 而觀賞人的素質相信一定也會成長,指日可待。 內部委託管理的廠商-VVG樣團隊, 也是一個很令人興奮的消息。 曾去過好樣團隊在台北許多不同的據點, 如好樣思維、好樣本事等旗下經營店家, 非常喜歡騎營造氛圍以及質感。 不過偏藝術及設計為重, 個人認為國家歌劇院應該是被政府設定為「觀光」, (雖然覺得他應該要是重要藝文場所) 總覺得與其好樣團隊營造的氛圍有些不搭。 尚還是個散步的好地方。 圖為三樓展演廳內展出的歌劇院結構縮小模型。

  • 圓弧的建築設計,非常有質感,裡面寬敞舒適,可以晃晃👍👍👍

  • 全家到新光吃完晚餐後一起散步到附近的台中國家歌劇院,這裡除了看表演,頂樓的義式蔬食餐廳也不錯。而晚上前面廣場的水池會噴水,加上周遭大樓燈光,形成倒影很漂亮。這裡是看夜景拍照的好地方。
