NCPA stops live shows after Covid resurgence

MUMBAI: Barely 18 days after reopening to the public, the National Centre for Performing Arts (NCPA) Sunday cancelled all live shows owing to the resurgence of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The city’s leading cultural venue located at Nariman Point had reopened as recently as February 3 after 11 months of lockdown.

Its chairman Khushroo Suntook said, “The safety of the artistes, members of the public and our employees is a priority at the NCPA. In the wake of the rising number of Covid-19 cases in Mumbai, we felt it prudent to postpone our events. We hope to welcome back audiences soon to our theatres in the safest manner possible.”

The centre will issue refunds for tickets to patrons.
