National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA)
Mumbai's premier cultural centre
Inaugurated in 1969, the National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA), Mumbai, was “the first multi-venue, multi-genre cultural centre in South Asia”. The brainchild of JRD Tata and Jamshed Bhabha, the NCPA counts luminaries such as Satyajit Ray and Yehudi Menuhin among its earliest advisors. One of India’s premiere cultural institutions, it is “committed to preserving and promoting India’s rich and vibrant artistic heritage in the fields of music, dance, theatre, film, literature and photography, as well as presenting new and innovative work by Indian and international artists from a diverse range of genres”.
The NCPA houses five theatres as well as galleries and libraries, and hosts more than 700 events each year, making it India’s largest performing arts centre.
