National Theatre

The unmistakable architecture of the National Theatre deserves to be seen – it has been described as either a ship, or, more abstractly, as a seagull spreading its wings. Chinese developers built the theatre and it opened in 1992 as the centrepiece for cultural life in Ghana. It’s home to the National Symphony Orchestra, the National Theatre Players, National Dance Company and three youth groups. The events calendar is getting better all the time, but it still seems seriously under-used.
