Wales Millennium Centre
Wales Millennium Centre (Canolfan Mileniwm Cymru) is an arts centre at the northern end of Roald Dahl Place in the Cardiff Bay area. It comprises one large theatre and two smaller halls with shops, bars and restaurants. It houses the national orchestra and opera, dance, theatre and literature companies. It opened in 2004.

The exterior of the building is clad in multi-coloured slate collected from Welsh slate quarries. Inscribed on the front of the dome, above the main entrance, are two poetic lines, written by Welsh poet Gwyneth Lewis. The Welsh version is Creu Gwir fel gwydr o ffwrnais awen, which means "Creating truth like glass from the furnace of inspiration". The English is “In These Stones Horizons Sing”. The lettering is formed by windows in the upstairs bar areas.
