With a design echoing the tradition of Europe’s great opera houses, the Performance Hall features superb acoustics, meticulously integrated in the design, construction, and furnishing of every component. Elegant décor and design inspired by local elements provide patrons with a true Lowcountry experience.

Patrons will find beautifully designed opera boxes on the second level, an oval-shaped orchestra level with two center aisles along with the dress circle and the lower and upper gallery enhance Designed to provide stunning views and an unparalleled acoustical experience every seat in the Performance Hall brings the audience close to the stage.

The Martha and John M. Rivers Performance Hall also offers an unprecedented opportunity to expand exposure to the arts for all local school-age children through performances, workshops, tours, and classes with performers, artists, and arts ensembles.
