Performers in Christchurch are rejoicing over the opening of a world-class centre for music and the arts in the city.

The building, known as The Piano because its design was inspired by the curves of a grand piano, has replaced The Music Centre of Christchurch, which was damaged beyond repair in the 2011 earthquakes.

Small finishing touches are still being added to the $16.8 million facility, which doesn't officially open until next month.
