A theatre represents the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.
The Nelum Pokuna (Lotus Pond) â€“ Mahinda Rajapakse theatre is a dream that has come alive for all the performing artists all over the country.
It is a fully equipped performance centre, meant for large scale theatrical productions. The theatre consists of two venues for performance, which includes the main auditorium and an open air amphitheater.
As this architectural masterpiece is situated in the heart of the Colombo city, it facilitates easy access for both local and foreign producers. The Theatre is also surrounded by several five Star Hotels. Also there are several commercial establishments, like ODEL, the Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct etc; nearby.
The ease of access and the other facilities in the area attract many foreign artistes and producers to host their productions at the Theatre. Hence, the Nelum Pokuna Mahinda Rajapaska Theatre becomes a solid body for bringing in foreign investment to the economy and will play a vital role in promoting tourism in the Sri Lanka.
With the coming of this phenomenal place, many of us are waiting to see more international standard productions on stage knowing that physical problem of on stage are not going to be present in this kind of a developed theatre anymore. We have our fingers crossed hoping for the very best with our eyes dazed by the elegance and beauty of this unique and iconic theatre.
