Guided Tours

You have enjoyed the shows, now come discover the space. Guided tours of the NCPA are incredible journeys into this sprawling complex comprising of 5 theatres, rehearsal and teaching spaces, libraries, recording studios and living quarters for resident musicians. Appreciate the architecture – from the fabulous acoustics in our theatres to the clever design of our open spaces, understand what makes us the country's premiere performing arts centre.

The NCPA campus tour can be scheduled any day between Monday and Friday, 11 am to 5 pm; though we do recommend visiting in the morning as our theatres are relatively free at that time.

The tour takes approximately one hour depending on the size of the group and there is no cost involved for the same.

The tour involves a walk around the NCPA campus, visiting all our 5 theatres (subject to it not being used) and learning a little about the history of the NCPA with bits of trivia about each theatre.

In addition to the theatre, we also take you to visit the Piramal Art Gallery (which is where our photography exhibits are hosted), two extensive libraries filled with books, LPs and CDs on all performing arts, our recording studio and all open spaces.

In addition to the tour, we could also add an appreciation class on Opera, Classical Music and Ballet with our resident librarian who is very well-versed in the subject. That will also be free of cost.
