Seating and House capacity

Parterre Right: 206 seats

TOTAL: 1086 seats (seating numbers are approximate)

Wheelchair and handicap access available in all levels. Assistive listening devices are available upon request.

The Concert Hall has multiple configurations. Both parterres are rotating rooms where the floor and the walls spin to face away from the stage.

When the parterres are facing away from the stage, they also become alternate meeting spaces in the form of a Recital Hall and a Lecture Hall.
