According to the organization, the new hall is one of the world’s most acoustically advanced theaters, achieving an N1 sound rating, the lowest level at which humans can detect sound.

The theater can transform in shape, seating and sound to accommodate a variety of performances and events with or without amplification, similar to Carnegie Hall, the Sydney Opera House, and Royal Albert Hall.
