Kuwait is looking to build an opera theatre as part of the Gulf state's push for more cultural activities.

Kuwait's cabinet has asked the Ministry of Public Works to build the opera theatre, as well as renovating existing theatres to further boost the country's cultural scene.

Prime Minister Sheikh Nasser Mohammad Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah also called on the ministry to establish cultural centres in all six governorates, KUNA News Agency reported.

Roudhan Al-Roudhan, the Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs said theatre renovations would take place with necessary equipment supplied to enable them "carry out their cultural role".

The Ministry of Public Works, he added, would allocate places for youths to exercise cultural hobbies to "make good use of their free time".
