Main Performance Hall

A state-of-the-art performance venue with five different configurations creating endless artistic possibilities.

Unprecedented Artistic Potential

The Lindemann’s Main Hall is unprecedented in its ability to transform into multiple configurations of stage and audience, making it an active partner in stimulating and realizing the artist’s vision. A collaboratively curated, reconfigurable space, the Main Hall can be transformed into an immersive experimental media cube; a 388-seat recital hall; a 275-seat end-stage theater; a 530-seat concert hall with a stage for a 100-piece orchestra and a choir loft for 70; and a large flat floor configuration.

To house the five preset configurations, the building invents a new performance typology where all six surfaces of its shoebox-shaped main hall modulate physically and/or acoustically through automated and manually assisted performance equipment. These include five seating gantries, a perimeter ring of retractable acoustic curtains, 40 adjustable acoustic reflector panels, seven utility battens, three lighting bridges, two stage lifts, three seating wagon lifts, and numerous stage risers and seating wagons.
