A really nice modern auditorium, facing over the water of the grand canal. Setting is comfortable with plenty of legroom. There are a couple of pleasant bars in the foyer arae. Good acoustics.

Daniel Liebeskind architecture. Perfect auditorium with impeccable acoustics and sight lines. We went to see Akram Khans reinterpretation of Giselle for ENB. WOW. Bollywood meets Ballet.

Went here on April 16th 2018 to see Matilda. Fantastic show. Great troupe of actors/dancers/singers. Very funny and poignant. I found it very hard to hear what people were saying. When we were leaving I spoke to a woman who found it the same. The...More
