The National Theatre, opened in 1992 and located in the Victoriaborg district of Accra, Ghana, was built by the Chinese and offered as a gift to Ghana.
It has a building area of 11,896 square metres, and is sited near the junction of the Independence Avenue and Liberia Road. The elegant and imposing National Theatre has a complicated construction moulding and novel exterior features. When looked at from a distance, the whole structure looks like a gigantic ship or a seagull spreading its wings.
The National Theatre houses the three resident companies of the National Dance Company, the National Symphony Orchestra, and the National Theatre Players.
