Arts & Performing Arts Culture, Heritage & Arts

You know that feeling that makes your heart swell when the orchestra hits a sweet, sad note? Or when contemplating an artistic masterpiece, the humbling sense that you’re in the presence of greatness? Or the terror you feel for the protagonist being stalked onstage? Savour these deliciously extreme emotions when you immerse yourself in the local arts and performing arts scene. Exhibitions and live performances are richly diverse, from contemporary to timeless classics, at indoor and outdoor venues alike. Browse the art galleries and studios, take in a play or spend the evening at the symphony, the opera or the ballet. The artist in you will rejoice.
