MUMBAI: The hub of the city’s culturescape, National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA) at Nariman Point, is set to reopen for live performances on February 3 after a prolonged lockdown closure. The inaugural highlight is a show by the SOI Chamber Orchestra.
Chairman Khushroo Suntook said, “Art enthusiasts can now enjoy classical concerts, recitals, plays and stand-up shows at NCPA once more. We are thoroughly prioritising hygiene. I can vouch for our safety protocols since they have been designed in keeping with the rules laid down by the BMC. We have made sure that all venues, green rooms and washrooms are sanitised, and have kept temperature and oxygen level checks upon entry.”
NCPA has five theatres, namely Tata Theatre, Godrej Dance Theatre, Experimental Theatre, Jamshed Bhabha Theatre and Little Theatre. Additionally, there is the Piramal Art Gallery, Open Air Plaza, Tata Theatre Garden and Experimental Theatre Garden among other sites.

Santoor artiste and Tansen Samman awardee Satish Vyas, whose father Pt C R Vyas started it in honour of his guru in 1977, said, “I am happy to resume our festival February 5-6 while observing all Covid-19 norms laid down by the state government.
