I just visited Esplanade recently. You will have a lot of choices in term of arts such as the concourse, indoor theater and the magnificent outdoor one. They have different themes at different time. When i was there last month is the series of Mosaic, which introduced all kinds of traditional and contemporary music performance. We enjoyed from chinese folk music to french techno music. One of the lovely aspect of the Outdoor theater is the fantastic view towards the marina bay sands and the skyscrapers of the center business district of Singapore. At around 9 plus in the evening, you can enjoy the light and music show of Marina bay sands at the same time. The place is incredible, do visit there on weekend evening. Visited March 2013
