Gallus Hall

Gallus Hall

With a variegated auditorium and two balconies, the white marble walls of this magnificent architectural gem enhance its sophisticated minimalist appeal. The Hall’s theatre style is that of a stage and a proscenium, with the basic stage being composed of three equivalent segments that can be moved independently of each other, while another revolving stage with a diameter of 17 m is located below stage.

With its superb technical resources and geared to the requirements of the most demanding production companies, the Hall is an ultimate venue for an unlimited range of events: from symphony and chamber concerts in the acoustic shell, jazz and world music performances, opera, ballet and dance productions to technically challenging theatre and multimedia shows. The Hall is also ideal for large-scale conventions, congresses and ceremonies.

The Gallus Hall boasts outstanding acoustics that have been praised by artists regularly touring the most prestigious international venues, and it is especially noted for its majestic pipe organ, manufactured at the Karl Schuke’s renowned Berlin organ workshop.

The Hall takes its name after Slovenian composer Jacobus Gallus Carniolus (1550–1591), who represented the Counter-Reformation in Bohemia and garnered world repute with its extensive oeuvre of motets and madrigals.
