ON Stage is the cultural magazine of the National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA), Mumbai, and features authoritative stories on the performing arts. The NCPA is India’s premier performing arts centre, presenting over 600 events annually. It is also home to the Symphony Orchestra of India, India's first and only professional orchestra, which performs to great acclaim in India and internationally, and regularly works with some of today’s leading conductors and soloists, including Charles Dutoit, Maria João Pires, and Augustin Dumay, amongst others. The NCPA has also played host to several world-class orchestras such as the London Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, China Philharmonic and most recently, the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra. The NCPA has single-handedly invigorated the Western classical music scene in Mumbai, and ON Stage has assiduously chronicled its musical adventures.
