Esplanade Tour

Take a peek under Esplanade’s famous domes in this tour that takes you into the Concert Hall, Theatre and other front-of-house spaces.

Experience the sublime acoustics of the Esplanade Concert Hall and take a seat in the majestic Esplanade Theatre. This tour gives you a peek under Esplanade’s famous domes, taking you into the auditoriums of our Concert Hall, Theatre, Singtel Waterfront Theatre and other front-of-house spaces.


Along the way, find out about Esplanade’s architecture and history and pick up other interesting nuggets of information such as how the Esplanade Concert Hall can be tuned to sound like a small room or a huge cathedral, and how external noise and vibration is prevented from travelling into the performance venues.

Seeing the behind the scenes and backstage area of the Esplanade was really cool and I’ve been coming here for so long, so it was super nice.

Henry was very knowledgeable about the history of the place. It was quite enjoyable; I liked seeing parts of the theatre that we often do not see as theatre goers, and understanding the acoustics, etc.

Understanding the best places to sit for a performance at either of the theatre or the concert hall for future performances.
