About Us

Esplanade is Singapore's national performing arts centre and a not-for-profit organisation with a social mission.

We believe that the arts can transform lives through its ability to uplift spirits, provide inspiration, foster bonds and cultivate understanding. The arts can bring individuals and communities closer together and it is our vision to be a performing arts centre for everyone.

Esplanade operated by The Esplanade Co Ltd (TECL), which is a not-for-profit organisation, a registered Charity and an Institution of a Public Character. The Charity Council awarded TECL the Charity Governance Award (Special Commendation for Clarity of Strategy) in 2016, and the Charity Transparency Award for four consecutive years since 2016.

Our Programmes

Esplanade's programming is guided by our social mission, to entertain, engage, educate and inspire. We seek to enrich everyone's lives, including seniors, youth, children and underserved communities, through the arts. Esplanade's year-long calendar of about 3,500 arts performances and activities span different cultures, languages and genres including dance, music, theatre, and more. Of these, more than 70% are presented free for all to enjoy. Esplanade's visual arts programmes at our public spaces also allow visitors to view and explore art works for free. And through videos, podcasts, stories and more on Esplanade Offstage (, our online all-access backstage pass and insider's guide to Singapore and Asian arts and culture, everyone can have continued access to the arts even from home.
