The centrepiece of the CCP complex is set back from Roxas Blvd and constructed in the bombastic style favoured by dictators everywhere. It never quite lived up to its promise of being a centre of culture for the masses, but the building has a grand design by noted Filipino architect Leandro Locsin. Inside is an art gallery , a library and a museum of musical instruments . Three theatres regularly present performances by the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra, Ballet Philippines and local and visiting artists.
