  • Awesome beautiful building with a very nice ballet. It was really a special night and I can fully recommend it.
  • A group of my friends visited this venue for The Symphony of the Goddesses performance and we had an excellent time. The venue was setup perfectly to house the type of crowd appropriate to the event itself to make everything fit perfectly.
