Beijing Opera House

I made the most of a rare clear sky to take a shot of the futuristic Beijing Opera  House building, officially called National Centre for the Performing Arts (or National Grand Theatre in Chinese 国家大剧院).

You enter the building by an hallway that goes underneath the artificial lake that surrounds it.

And it’s no surprise that the locals call it “The Egg”.
