The main hall, which features opera, ballet, and orchestral performances, is an impressive five stories high and contains 2,303 seats. Its modern interior is visually stunning, and its acoustics are world-renowned. The smaller recital hall, located on the second floor, has 649 seats and hosts almost daily chamber music concerts and recitals.

In theme with its mission to promote the arts, the facility holds multiple workshops, competitions, and professional development programs to encourage and facilitate artistic learning.
