The Furniture Gallery

The Palace Museum has over 6,200 pieces and sets of Ming and Qing furniture in its collection, many of which are rare and superb examples. For many decades, these treasures have been stored deep within the collection storehouses. Now, after almost three years of planning and renovation, the South Storehouses are now open as a modern space for showcasing exquisite examples of dynastic furniture. The inaugural exhibition features over 300 pieces and sets of exquisite Qing-dynasty furniture used by the Imperial Court.

Mozart: L’opéra Rock

The French musical dramatization of the life of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart begins when he is 17 and ends with his death in 1791 at the age of 35. Mixing original pop-rock compositions with Mozart’s own work, its lavish production values capture the ornate world of the late 18th century and the music and styles of the modern era.
